Let me preface this with a few things:
Any suggestions with how we could mark stories ready for release and close a sprint, but be able to dictate a future release date?
And then we'd like to be able to search for things that have a specific release date. How can we do that?
You can still have separate workflow statuses for ready for release and released and then closed. In your scrum board, you can map only statuses till ready for release (which will be the last column mapping). You will get credits when the story reaches that status and burn down will work as expected.
You can then move the story to released and then closed as and when that happens. You can also use the due date or a custom date field to set release dates.
Once you map these statuses to columns in the Scrum board, you can just drag and drop issues from one status to another. Or you can do it directly from an issue using the workflow buttons. Workflow transitions appear as buttons and you use them instead of using the Edit operation to change status.
