I wonder whether MacTeX accepts Bcc's: I received your message only once (or maybe the Mail app merged the two -- or three -- messages for display once they were received).

It's not on the list archive at <https://tug.org/mailman/private/mactex/2021-January/date.html> in any case.

Thanks for pointing the existence of these notes, I had not thought of trying the obvious thing: look at TLU's Help menu, and realize it has a Release Notes item. Sorry!

That's said, something's wrong: all I get is an empty window with "The requested URL was not found on this server".

Looking closer,

	/Applications/TeX/TeX\ Live\ Utility.app/Contents/Frameworks/Sparkle.framework/Versions/A/Headers/SUAppcastItem.h


	// Initializes with data from a dictionary provided by the RSS class.
	- (NSURL *)releaseNotesURL;

but that's all there is. It seems the actual release notes URL is in the TLU binary itself,

	/Applications/TeX/TeX\ Live\ Utility.app/Contents/MacOS/TeX\ Live\ Utility



With the move to GitHub, shouldn't it be
