I need to see if a specific bug was fixed, and if so, in which release.

You can get the release notes in their entirety for every release up to 2016.2:

https://www.perforce...er/relnotes.txt

I don't think a "full" version of the release notes is available anywhere after that point; you'll need to individually download each relnotes.txt from r17.1 onward in order to grep them all (my suggestion was that they put them in the Workshop along with the p4 client code, since then you could at least use "p4 grep" instead of having to download them from the web).

Thanks. That's what I was afraid of. It makes life more difficult for those of us who cannot upgrade with every release. (We shoot for once a year, but have been waiting on a bug fix since 2018.1 was released.)

Just want to add that since they stopped publishing the full release notes, it's been a pain in the rump for us, too, to figure out whether or not a bug has been fixed in a particular release.

We've had requests for both all-in-one and release-specific docs for various and valid reasons. Both approaches have their good and bad points, but I'll raise this question in-house again in case a solution is available that suits most. There are a few attempts to 're-combine' the release notes, such as the following.

It's not "official" as such, so I can't say how up-to-date it is.

It should be easy to provide both. For now, any time I have a question, I go check the website for newer release notes for everything since 2017.1 (where we currently are), download those, and search. It's tolerable, but hardly ideal.

Thanks for the link. It's a good start, but not up to date.
