    I don't see a post here for the list of changes for v15.1, where can I find those changes?

    Thanks,

    Thanks, I missed that. I usually come to the forums for the changelogs.

    I really wish each release contained a proper changelog. In the past, it seems like we get changelogs for service packs, but just a marketing-focused "what's new" page for major updates. This change for 15.1, having just a blog post and not a proper change log, is a step in the wrong direction in my mind.

    Perhaps there is a more technical changelog for each update, and I just haven't discovered it?

    Also, when it comes to the plethora of Nuget packages, everything is marked as release/stable and nothing as prerelease. I'd like to try newer hotfix builds to see if it addresses any issues I'm having, but I can't find out what has changed due to a lack of changelogs.

    I write a heavily regulated piece of medical software, and we unfortunately can't update on a whim as there has to be a complex series of documentation and validation for every minor update of 3rd-party software we use.

    While the "What's New" blog posts are appreciated (someone obviously puts a lot of thought and work into it each time), please don't forgo a technical changelog.

    Thanks for listening,
    Mike

    Mike's comments times 10. We really need a tech release of what's changed.

    Thanks Mohit.
    It would be helpful if there was a place we could go consistently to see the fixes - something to suggest to the group?
