Apparently meson support in release.sh has been languishing unmerged
for a while:


This didn't work for me out of the box because it relied on very
specific formatting of the meson.build file. I updated it to use 'meson
introspect' (which I don't think existed when that MR was first
written), and now 'release.sh --dry-run .' looks like it works.

Note you'll need to install jq for this to work, which is sort of like
grep-on-steroids for json so it's quite nice to have around anyway.
