Is there a way to get the release notes emailed to someone when a version is released?

Is it possible to have JIRA send an email to users or an email group when I click on the Release button of a version? This is an action that we currently do manually multiple times per week. It would be great if JIRA could email the group the release notes or just an email.

One way to solve this could be "intercepting" the version released events using the JIRA Automation Plugin, then generate and email the release notes using the PDF Automation Plugin.

The real question is whether the version released events are visible for the JIRA Automation Plugin. There is an event type called "generic event", this may help, I'm not sure.

If not, you can still try to work around it, by creating an explicit task issue called for example "Make the release 1.2.3". When it is resolved or closed, that can be captured by the JIRA Automation plugin (I'm sure about it, we use similar mechanisms all the time, see my screenshot) and then you can generate and send the PDF release notes.
