There is no release button or releases in the next-gen projects. Issues in the Done column will be automatically removed from your board after 14 days.

This explains why I have not managed, after 2 hours of googling, to find a way of adding the VERSIONS function in my next gen projcet - so HOW do we track releases in teh new project(s)? - My Dev Team used teh Fix Versions field to assign issues to releases, which we kind of got into the habit of doing... HELP!!??
You're very kind to take the time to reply, thank-you. This has actually transpired to have caused us a significant challenge as a team, as we all spent days migrating over, only to find this KEY MISSING FEATURE!! - Let's hope they monitor the Community and fixt this sharpish!
If you want a release option in next-gen, vote for this idea:
That is the Next Gen Roadmap Shipped section, specifically for Deployment Integration.
The screenshot is a Next Gen project, and it shows RELEASES in the right sidebar.
Does that means it's already being worked on coming soon even though it's not listed on the roadmap?
Here is the screenshot I'm referring to:
@Drew Angell The releases section in your screenshot is probably the existing Jira + Bitbucket Pipelines integration: https://bitbucket.org/blog/jira-software-bitbucket-pipelines-new-integration-gives-continuous-visibility-from-backlog-to-release
We enabled Next-Gen releases in our app Swanly release timeline for Jira Cloud.
You can create release for Next-Gen project in application. We're currently working on showing Fix version field in Next-Gen issues.
There is much more features available eg. Visualisation of releases on Timeline, Adding custom stages to releases, cross-project releases…

Releases and versions are now available. See the answer of Rob Wilson below (which imho should be the new accepted answer): https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/Re-Release-in-next-gen-projects/qaq-p/1253764/comment-id/61262#M61262
You do have to enable it manually in project settings since it is disabled by default.
We enabled full support for release functionality in Next-Gen projects in app Swanly release timeline for Jira Cloud.
You can create release for Next-Gen project, access Releases screen and assign versions to Next-Gen issues. just like in clasic projects.

@Lily Is there a reason for not clearing the "Done" column of its tickets whenever you release the version they belong to, or is this feature yet to be developed?
I've read that the tickets in the "Done" column is archived after 14 days, but my preference is that they are remove together with the corresponding version as I release that version, or the "Done" column early get very cluttered.
