Yep, all those will still work.
As for subsequent Windows versions, all it takes is for someone to decide
to do it - you, for example, if your platform isn't described and you think
it should be included.

As for the release notes - you don't read carefully enough. Any "gotchas"
and recommendations that are known with any platforms are documented
there. You *do* need both volumes of the releasenotes if you want to have
a fully-incremented doc set.
