We are excited to announce some more changes to the release cycle we will be trialing.
What: We will be shifting from our current release cycle to Daily releases Monday - Thursday. If at any point in time we notice something is wrong (ex: new bugs found as part of regression testing), we will either fix it before release or skip a release. We now have dedicated resources to ensure the member experience isn't disrupted.
Why: We currently need to wait up to 1.5 weeks to get code into production (whether it be for bug fixes or maintenance). We want to bring this time delay down so we can get fixes out sooner.
When: We are targeting tomorrow July 21st to start the new release cycle. Depending on how well the trial does, we may keep this new release cycle for the foreseeable future or scale back to the previous cycle.
Note: If there are no new changes we will skip the release for the day.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
- The Monday through Thursday daily releases will go out to OneFora the same day as the global releases normally within the same hour after QA confirms.
- The Product team will post the weekly releases on Thursday or Friday of that week for the entire week of releases in one post.
- The CM team will review and confirm updates and develop Help < Release Notes shortly after to be updated globally.
