TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
While making some changes to the contents of release notes, we started questioning the entire concept. Is the RN a snapshot of the current situation, or just a "what's new" since the previous one? For example, we have a Compatibility heading. In the snapshot scenario, the text under it remains mostly unchanged through the versions (unless something relevant happens). In the "what's new" approach, if there is no change in compatibility, the entire section is omitted.
