Out with the old, in with the new - changes to the weekly release notes

We've moved to a new release schedule. Now when new features, fixes, and improvements are ready we release them, instead of releasing a long list of changes once a week. 

This means that the old way of publishing weekly release notes no longer fits. So we'll be letting you know (via Nexus News) as soon as a change is in production and ready for you to use. 

The Nexus News Feed is easy to filter, the posts are easier to digest and it's an all-around better way to stay up to date with all things Mercury Nexus

You can learn more about Nexus News on the Connective Wiki.
