Question

How do you share release notes and updates in your software?

I'm looking at using Headway to share new features in out app, after having used a blog to share our release notes previously. Anything else we should consider using?

Hi! You may want to check out a few others:

-Announcekit
-Beamer
-Releasenotes.io
-Noticeable

I'm also working on Makelog for better sharing release notes/product updates with users. We're starting to spec out in-app notifications and would love to chat if you are interested/can't find what you're looking for in other tools.

Oh that's an awesome list, thanks for sharing!

Curious: What's your team's core inspiration for Makelog, and what is your favorite thing in it versus the competition?

Sure thing :) glad it's helpful!

Re: inspiration for Makelog... when I was a CSM at Segment, one of the things I realized is that my clients cared a TON about the long tail of product updates -- not just the "big" stuff. But there was never a process for consistently capturing those medium to smaller-sized updates, so they often fell through the cracks.

We want to help companies establish that process, so we integrate with data sources where the work originates (right now, GitHub, Jira, Linear, and Clubhouse). That way, it's easy to see everything that shipped and decide what you want to share. Eventually, we want to automatically generate product updates from the source too.

That's probably my favorite thing about it right now vs the competition. Let me know what you think!

Ahh that's very cool, yeah most tools like this have you write new release notes manually instead of pulling them in from other apps. That's clever!

How do you find new software to use?

The market is bursting with new software, a lot of new products are launching every day. A few months ago I posted on Capiche about my SaaS idea. Your feedback is priceless and helped us to change...
