Spending half the subject line explaining that your company is announcing something done by a project that is technically independent of the company, - well, that's just going to reduce the chance anybody runs the story. Also if people are picking up the story because of the words "Red Hat" (after all RH is a big tech company now like Oracle, some of the places that run this material may still feel the need for a sidebar explaining what "Linux" is whenever they mention it) then removing those key words means less coverage.
So I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Red Hat release normally says exactly what we read above.

I don't recall precisely what it read before, but in the past the RH mail used to talk more about 'Red Hat' than it does now - it's been changed to refer to 'the Fedora project' consistently based on feedback from Fedora folks. I can only guess that the 'Red Hat' in the subject line is an oversight, but I'm not involved in the details of that process, so I'm speculating.
