    I think that the new feature will show up later today. In future, my understanding is that features which are not tied to the legacy database will be able to be released “on the fly” and hence not tied to the usual Sunday morning release cycle. Quick Base is off loading new functionality to a completely different and newer Archecture.

    I suspect that somewhere at Quick Base there are some Engineers having their morning coffee and getting the right “hands on deck” lined up to turn on the new feature.

    Somewhere in the depths of the documentation it says it will be available today (Monday, 21 May).  But it is a bit confusing to have it included as part of the release notes but not part of the release, huh?
    Arguably, if they release it at noon, then it will still be Monday. :)

    But we will see what happens.  This is the first time they have had a release which has not been all at once on a Sunday morning.

    But I have empathy for the issue.  The UI will change for my uses and I want to jump in there first thing in the morning on Monday or during Sunday and be one step ahead to answer questions for my users.

    Mark is correct that after our last UI update this time around the decision was made to use the Release to lay the groundwork for the changes and our usual monthly release for updates and then launch the new My Apps page and the create new app from scratch experience this morning so that our full team would be available for the change over. This way we would be ready to field questions and have everyone on hand for any issues that may come up since the change over does not require us to take down our service like the lion share of our release does. It is set to go into effect this morning and we are really eager to hear what everyoen thinks once it does.
