Here are the release notes:
 > The main purpose of the preview package is the extraction of selected
 > elements from a LaTeX source, like formulas or images, into separate
 > pages of a DVI file.  This works with DVI files postprocessed by
 > either Dvips and Ghostscript or dvipng, but it also works when you are
 > using PDFTeX for generating PDF files.
 > Current uses of the package include the preview-latex package for
 > WYSIWYG functionality in the AUCTeX editing environment, generation of
 > previews in LyX, as part of the operation of the ps4pdf package, the
 > tbook XML system and some other tools.
 > The preview package is being developed along and distributed with
 > preview-latex.  With the integration of preview-latex into AUCTeX as
 > of version 11.81, the preview package became part of AUCTeX as well.
 > It can therefore be obtained as part of AUCTeX distribution files
 > available at <URL:ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/auctex/>.  CTAN provides
 > the standalone preview package at <CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/preview>.
 > For more information about the preview package please refer to the
 > home page of AUCTeX at <URL:http://www.gnu.org/software/auctex/>.
 > Version 11.84 of the preview package is mainly a bug fix release.
 > Noteworthy changes include a fix for XymTeX catcodes and the addition
 > of chapter headings to the list of constructs previewable out of the
 > box.
