Am I missing something?

 

I've just seen an announcement saying that Ultra is being updated on Fri 18th March.

 

When I follow the links to find the improvements, I'm told to check back on Mon 21st!?

 

Case created on BtB (details below).  I welcome comments / help / support / someone to tell me I'm not being unrealistic.

 

Very kindest

Description:
I understand we are being upgraded on Fri 18th March.

However, according to this post, we don't find out what the upgrade does until Mon 21st:

https://en-us.help.blackboard.com/Collaborate/Ultra/Administrator/010_Release_Notes/Release_Notes_2016_03

We need the information now please - at least a week ahead of implementation - & can this be the norm from now on?

We find it useful to let colleagues know about the update - it also raises the profile of the service to encourage use:

Indeed, a track record of improvements will be a real benefit to the visibility and perceived robustness / efficacy / usability / availability / reliability of the service.

Many thanks
