I have seen people advertise their upcoming affiliation changes across a number of different fields, and it is almost always appropriate to do. I see it as a simple matter of courtesy to the audience, who may be interested in contacting you in the future. The one caveat that I would add, because you sound (appropriately) excited about "upgrading" your ...

While I think it is rarely an issue in the practical sense, I would still heed caution. Unless you are publishing your paper for open access, you are most of the time signing a publishing agreement with the journal and in so doing transferring copyright to them. While most journals have a liberal agreement when it comes to preprints, some do not. Hence, it ...
