Hi, I'm in the process of writing the update for a software package. The
wants an "update" guide which only documents the new features to the
software. I am going by the last release guide, however I was curious what
would recommend. What tips and styles have you used to enhance the
update guide you're working on? The client's last update looks really boring,
just listing the features for that release with some overview of each. Is
typical or are there some variations on update guides out there? Would you
share with me what has worked for you?
