VAW 3.0.1.1039 release notes is missing important information

Post by b.vanhaastrecht » May 22, 2019 8:57 am

Hello,

The release notes of VAW 3.0.1.1039 is missing what's fixed and whats added against the previous version. As deploying an update takes time and effort we need to determine if the new version is worth deploying.

Kind regards,
Bastiaan

Hi Bastiaan,

Thank you for sharing your feedback.

For new features please refer to the "What's new" article. You may also keep an eye on that thread for VAW updates.

Regarding the improvements, we are not sure you'd like to go through the fifty pages document mentioning what has been fixed - that's why it's not included into any of the aforementioned release docs. If you have a question about a certain issue of the previous version - feel free to ask. Just in general, every new version is worth deploying, especially if you keep your B&R servers updated (as recommended either).

Regards,
Fedor

Hello Fedor,

I ment the delta from 3.0.0.748 to 3.0.1.1039. The included hot-fixes, normal fixes, added features & possible change of behavior is not mentioned on those resources. This is actually the case of most Veeam software updates, but should be added for obvious reasons.

I am of the opposite mindset. If you have 50 pages of changes, I would like to read them, to see if they solve any of the issues I may be facing. As it stands, when I saw the new agent version but literally 0 changelog, I had literally 0 incentive to upgrade to it. I am sure there are internal changes we don't need to know about (I am a developer myself), but when you fail to document or communicate the value of an update to the end user I don't see why I should update.
