That's so simple; it's not fancy at all. I was hoping for a term with a
little more chiffon.
My slightly more professional-ish (than my chiffon comment) opinion is
that "updates" conveys changes to current features rather than changes
to *and* additions of new features. I tend to seek terms that provide a
little internal marketing to maintain and build user interest in the
product. A term in this case, I think, should imply a sense of product
evolution, rather than simply maintenance.
