Esther, you do realize that both This has been resolved and This is resolved
are in the passive voice? (past tense + any form of "to be") So one really
isn't better than the other.

If that's the problem, this doesn't solve it :) On the other hand, this is
a perfectly acceptable place for using the passive. It doesn't matter who
resolved it. It was done. That's all.

If you're just looking for a brief statement, how about just the word
Resolved or as I used to do: Fixed.

Dear All,

Just wanted to check with you on a conflict that I am facing and I know
it may sound minor, but I am again seeking your wisdom.

On documenting defect or enhancements in Release Notes, would you use:

This has been resolved ..

OR

This is resolved ..

Bearing in mind that I try to have a section (all in the past) with the
symptoms or the problem.

Then another section (all in present tense) detailing how the problem is
resolved (see, I can not even say here: has been resolved).

Please cc me on your replies for a faster retrieval.

Thanks and appreciate your feedback.

Esther
