Link: Ben Brooks on Your Cute Release Notes ☍

Ben Brooks:

With disturbingly increasing frequency, companies are deciding to let their marketing departments handle their release notes instead of the engineering team or product manager.

And we are all worse off for it.

This times 100. I think the overly-clever release notes are bad, but the now-common “we update our app every other week” and generic “bug fixes” are just as terrible and vague. Tell me something big that you fixed and have some self-respect.
