The banner which proposes to see a new version's release notes (see https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=69042) is really a good feature.
However I could not find a way to disable it. My use case is a school without roaming profiles: users will have the same banner each time they go on another computer, so it will be more annoying than helpful.
Steps to Reproduce:
Open LibreOffice preferences.
A setting should allow to disable the banner that proposes to show the releases notes.
This setting does not appear.
User Profile Reset: No
You can set the value of officecfg::Setup::Product::ooSetupLastVersion to an arbitrary high number and/or make it readonly. Does this solve the issue for you?
Thanks for the suggestion.
It look likes it would solve my issue, but I could not test it yet. Also, I hope setting this value to a very high number has no side effect (maybe it is used for other purpose in LibreOffice?).
I will try and let you know.

No, it was introduced for just this toolbar. However, why not do the readonly tweak, which was implemented exactly for your request.
I could finally test this setting. As you expected, it works just by setting the value read only.
I suppose I am not the only one not at ease with .xcd files, so here is mine:

<oor:component-data oor:package="org.openoffice" oor:name="Setup">
<prop oor:name="ooSetupLastVersion" oor:type="xs:string" oor:finalized="true"/>
