Read the release notes

Release notes are published approximately 2 weeks before the release to production date. Release to production is usually the second week of each month. Exceptions will be noted on this page.

All releases in continuous delivery are cumulative. For example, v20.04 includes all content from v20.02 and previous releases. Where a cell is marked with a dash ("-"), this release was not applied to the production servers and changes will be rolled into the next release.
