Hi guys,

Can we please have release notes for extension upgrades? All we currently have is a single Upgrade button with an "are you sure?" blurb, with no info on what the update will actually do;

This gives me zero confidence in upgrading any of the extensions, as if they break something I don't think I can revert the change.

If I have release notes, then i could at least make an informed decision on whether to proceed with the update.

A direct feedback link to the team that owns the extension would also be an added bonus, as I could then ask questions.

Cheers, Jez

As an extension provider, I agree wholeheartedly.  I would welcome a solution that would allow me to provide release notes when an update is pushed. 

On a similar subject, it would be great to have an array of extensionInfo objects on _satellite.buildInfo which includes (at least) extension name and version for each extension built to the library.

I've been thinking this through... I think that just having a key in extension.json where a developer could provide a link to release notes would be a start.

For example, the Adobe Analytics extension has release notes that could be linked to:

https://docs.adobelaunch.com/extension-reference/web/adobe-analytics-extension/adobe-analytics-relea...

As does the Adobe Target extension: https://docs.adobelaunch.com/extension-reference/web/adobe-target-extension/adobe-target-release-not...

I'd be happy to do the same with the extensions that I develop (and I am happy to get my own gitBook account).
