New releases release

After, ahem, releasing CommandBar releases a few months ago, we're shipping some improvements based on tremendous feedback we've received. These changes address some common pain points when using the feature for version control.

The main theme of the changes is to make it easier to understand what changes are shipped when, to handle situations when multiple product owners are involved in the release process.

  • A new UI allows you to view the release history for each environment (so you can see if someone made a release before you)
  • Add notes and tags to environments. That way you'll know why the release was made, and you can note whether it involves bug fixes, improvements, new commands, new recommendation rules, etc.
  • Compare changes across releases to understand the diff between the two.

And finally, we also heard that it can sometimes be useful to pin a version directly when init-ing. For example, if you want to make sure users in production see a certain version, you can guarantee that using the code below. Note that if you do this, you won't be able to make any changes to production (or wherever the version is pinned) without making a code change.
