    I'd like to echo these comments.  The release notes process and their accuracy is in need of significant improvement.

     

    In addition to receiving notification of this release without the corresponding notes; prior release notes have been missing critical information.  For example, "Enable Rate Limiting" was released for hosted Payment Pages 2.0 without release notes.  Then, after the fact release notes were included after we stumbled upon the feature and brought this to Zuora's attention.

    So almost 24 hours later and the Release Notes are not posted.

     

    1. When will Zuora be posting the Release Notes for R265

    2. Why can't Zuora post the Release Notes ahead of the Release date?  I would be surprised that a mature company with mature processes would not know what is in the Release prior to it being published.

     

    We now have 4 business days to test before this Release is in PRD, and we don't know what to test.

     

    Please improve your processes around these notifications.

     

    Thank you.
