The easiest thing to do will probably be to put point on "release",
start the export dispatcher, and hit "C-s" once to change the "Export
scope" to subtree. If all the contents you want are under "release",
that ought to do it. 

Another approach would be removing the subtrees you don't want, using
the "noexport" tag. But that wouldn't promote the "release" subtree to

Hope that helps! If you're likely to have more questions, there is an
org-specific mailing list at gmane.emacs.orgmode.
