_UPDATE: _Stack Change Management is now live!
The team here is continuing to crank out new features that we think will benefit all of you and we wanted to announce two of those today!
Stack Change Management
Essentially, we are splitting the current ‘Update' button into an ‘Apply' button and an ‘Upgrade' button. You will now be able to clearly distinguish between changes that you have made (updating your SSL certificates, for example) and the updates that Engine Yard has released. All of these changes will be made completely visible and you will have complete control over when to apply either of these sets of changes. In order to apply only your changes to the environment without upgrading to the latest Engine Yard updates, click ‘Apply.' When you are ready to upgrade to the latest Engine Yard updates, then click ‘Upgrade.' Before committing any of these changes, you will be able to view an itemized list of everything about to be applied to your environment. As always, we suggest that you test the upgrades in a cloned environment before upgrading in a production environment. We think Stack Change Management will greatly benefit everyone by adding this additional level of transparency. This feature will not otherwise affect your environment and you do not need to take any prior action. When it goes live, head over to our [Documentation](http://docs.engineyard.com/) page for more information. #### GitHub Account Linking
