Introducing… Release Notes

Each week, we review and discuss the productivity and technology news headlines of the week, but this week we’re taking off for the US Labor Day holiday. So, instead, we’re covering notable productivity software releases over the past month as an introduction of a new segment we’ll be adding to the show called Release Notes.
