The menu items look like this in the browser:
We deploy updates continuously around atleast as once per two weeks. These updates includes completely new features, improvements to existing features and fixes to bugs and issues. You can see these updates from the changelog widget.

If you click on one entry, the full changelog entry will be shown in detail.
If you click on the "See all changes" link, you will open a new tab with all changelog entries. From here you can view all releases done since we started using the capability.
In order for us to learn more about your needs and issues, we've added a way for you to share your needs, upvote somebody elses feedback to raise it's importance and also inform of issues you have. This feature is provided by a thrid party tool. Clicking on the "Give Feedback" link will open a new tab and show you all the current feedback and state of each entry in our development process. Note that if you do submit a feedback and provide your email address, you will automatically received notifications about the changes of the feedback.
You can create new feature requests using the create post widget. You can choose the category where the feedback applies from the list, but if the list does not contain a suitable category, you can leave it open, give a title for your feedback and explain in more detail what your feedback is about.

We review and evaluate all feedback and constantly plan our development based on the feedback we get and update the feedback state when we have made decisions about the feedback. The feedback thus goes through a process with states.
The following table explains the states used in conjunction of this
