Agenda & Notes

- Next alpha will be early January.

- Advertised Major Updates background

- 18th Aug @ 10%, 31st Aug @ 25%, 28th Oct completely unthrottled
- Consider using more aggressive upgrade text on old 2.0.0 version start pages
- % ADUs across each build:
- 3.0 -> 3.1.x:
|1 Nov||17.7||8.3||73.9|| ADUs were down (Europe on Holiday|
Low/weekend figures tend to have lower 2.0 ADUs.
The day after was 18.8% on 2.0.
|8 Nov||18.1||8.3||73.5||Suspect rise is due to the fact we've got "full" ADUs this week.|
- Still users moving across but slowing down. 3.1.7 will "refresh" offer - for 2.x users today, for 3.0.x users probably next week.
