How about a 'new feature' announcements tag?

When a new feature is offered, how about announcing it here on askbot assigning it a 'New Feature' tag?

This way, we could subscribe to this tag and keep current on the great new features of askbot ;)

Forgive me if you already have something along these lines and I did not see it yet.

The forum does not work well for the announcements.

We've started the changelog where we list all the new features for that, maybe with time we'll have some widget and perhaps an email/rss channel to broadcast the updates.

If you posted askbot update info to an 'Askbot Updated' Q&A thread here on askbot, users could 'follow' it with the option to get email updates. Why would this not work well? I'm still pretty new to Q&A's, so maybe I'm not understanding something. I'd like to stay updated easily.

No I see how a feature like this would be useful, just saying the "announcement" is not a "question". The announcement would look like a question without answers. We can probably hack askbot somehow to allow this though.
