Change Log

Below is a “sanitized” version of the Install Manager change log. This information is posted as part of a conscious effort to be more transparent in the development process. Not all information relating to a particular build is presented on this page - some information is still considered private and is therefore not included.



General Release Channel

Private Build Channel

This is the channel where the builds that are not considered “production ready” yet are provided for testing by a select group of individuals that represent the user-base and serve as the “front line” or the “canary in a coal mine” for a time before the build is promoted. This channel typically provides a build that is in the BETA phase of development, but technically can provide a build in the ALPHA phase.
