A note about our releases


We have a monthly cadence to releasing updates for Outlook 2016 for Mac. We also "flight" features to various rings to gather feedback and adjust before functionality goes out into Production.

Here is an outline of our releases:

  • We have rings of internal deployment where new functionality is lit up for "dogfooding" before it goes out to external customers
  • Insider Fast - this is our "fast" ring where we ship updates every week, usually on Wednesdays
    • We sometimes choose to keep features in Insider Fast for several weeks so we can get feedback before opening up to Insider Slow / Production
  • Insider Slow - this is our "slow" ring where we ship updates every month. Updates go out typically a week before it goes out to Production customers
  • Production - our monthly update to all Production customers

Here is an outline of our current flights and where functionality is available as this has been a huge request from our Insider audience to share this:
