I agree and disagree with some of your replies (mainly semantics, which is why I'm moving on for now), but the thing I still don't get is this line:

I agree that it's good for users to know about these features/fixes. But how are major companies supposed to show them in the App Store's release notes, when many (if not all) of these 'new features' are released incrementally?
