Suggestion - please provide release notes with each upgrade or update to the software, web interface software and firmware updates. Often they can simply be copied from the internal change control system as normally bugs are given an ID when verified as a bug. If you use an app like TFS or others, which help with software revisioning and bug tracking, it's pretty easy to glean release notes and not have to create them from scratch.
I'd sort of like to know what the "stability issues" are that the update warning note speaks of. A release notes file would be cool - like most other software companies and BIOS makers do - they list what all went into that update, no matter how trivial as SOMEONE may want to update based on some small fix for a minor issue and not the bigger thing.
For example, I was fine with the thumbnails, but that's not high on my list at this point so I could have lived without it, and after last night's troubles with the upgrade, I had decided for a while to SKIP this upgrade, I decided I didn't need the thumbnails and would wait until there were fixes for other issues, not feature enhancements. Then I read the fine print at the bottom and it said "stability issues" or words to that effect and I decided yeah, that's what I REALLY care about right now. So I went for it. Had there been a release notes with DETAILS on the tablotv site, I'd have grabbed that first - it's what I do 40+ hours a week, keep things up to date, switches, routers, servers and so on and I look for and grab release notes, read those first (assuming they are written to my level of reading abilities so they don't dazzle me with technical stuff HAHA) and THEN I decide if we REALLY need that update or if it's a fix for something we'll never see nor use.
I'd like to see Tablo release "release notes" with each new app or upgrade. List what was done in this version, historically, from latest down to the earlier releases.
This below is an example of the sort of thing I love reading about - specifics, then I KNOW if it should work better for me, or if there's nothing in a given update that will help me at all, or if I should even avoid it ->

Migration from SEP 11.0 to 12.1, or repairing a SEP 12.1 client, results in duplicate
client entries if the client is a Hyper-V guest OS
Fix ID: 2477905
Symptom: Migrating a client from SEP 11.0 to 12.1 results in a duplicate client entry in the SEPM
console if the client is a Hyper-V guest OS. This issue can also occur if a SEP 12.1 client is repaired via
the add/remove control panel, if the client is a Hyper-V guest OS.
Solution: The SEP client installer was modified to prevent a condition where the hardware ID is regenerated, resulting in a duplicate client entry.
