MatchPoint Snow

Release notes improvement

This new version brings improvements to Release Notes in order to have a detailed overview about changes that have been made to .xml, .ascx, .css, and .js files. The following features have been added in order to provide helpful information for the update process:

  • name of the modified .xml, .ascx, .css, .js files for each released feature/bug (other file type changes are not included)
  • notification that there are also .cs files modified (without including their names)
  • feature area is added as a tag on the backlog items so you get directly an idea which areas will be affected by the change
  • categories for features/bugs:
    • Mandatory / Required : The item brings changes that are required in order to have a working solution.
    • Highly recommended / Critical: The item brings changes that either bring fixes to previous features or we consider them to be important for our customers. These do not impact the solution in a breaking manner.
    • Optional / Feature-level decision: The item brings functionality that is independent from other functionalities making it safe if decided to not implement it. Notice: it might be the case that in future releases features might depend on these Optional items, transforming this item into a mandatory one if you decide to make use of the feature.
