We’ve added a changelog to the South Atlantic Blueprint 2020 release! As you probably know by now, we like to borrow best practices from the tech world to make the Blueprint more useful. A changelog is an easy-to-read document that captures the significant changes made in each version of a project or software program. So, the South Atlantic Blueprint changelog captures the major changes and improvements made in each version of the Blueprint. We always provide an overview of the improvements in a blog when a new version of the Blueprint is released, but the changelog goes into a lot more detail. It’s a very helpful resource for Blueprint staff to keep track of everything that’s changed and why. Now we’re sharing it with you!

One of my favorite components is a table summarizing all the indicator changes in each version of the Blueprint, which you can see above.

You’ll find the changelog is more comprehensive for the most recent Blueprint update to Version 2020. We did our best to catalog what changed in the past versions, as well, but of course, it’s a lot easier to keep documentation current than it is to try to reconstruct the past.
