Jira Release Notes Template Documentation

How do I get documentation about writing Release Notes templates.

I want to get list of possible variables (like $textUtils, $issueTypes, $action etc) and their types/classes.

I looked through http://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/latest/index-all.html but I found no answer.

This information is indeed missing from the last JIRA versions.
I did find an old JIRA issue listing the Velocity context for the release notes:


"action", action,
"req", ActionContext.getRequest(),
"issueTypes", issueTypes,
"appProps", applicationProperties,
"version", version.getName(),
"project", project.getString("name"),
"textUtils", textUtils,
"constantsManager", constantsManager,
"customFieldManager", ManagerFactory.getCustomFieldManager()

Hope this helps, but I'm not sure if it's still accurate.
