A single post should be posted to the new announcements list at the same time that an update is released. Such posts should be the only posts on that list.  Existing subscribers to this list should be automatically added to the new list. Following that, an email to this list should inform non-contributing users that they may now safely unsubscribe from this list.

Sounds good to me, though perhaps the announcements should always be
sent to both lists, such that users from this list don't have to be
automatically subscribed to yet another list.
