SCS Release 4 on the horizon

For our more active community members, SCS Release 4 has been on the radar for a few weeks now, as it was covered in both the Product Board and our Community Call. Further hints, such as the upgrade note for the gx-scs environment are clear signs, SCS Release 4 is on the horizon ;)

The release date for SCS Release 4 has been set for March 22nd, 2023.

How to help with making this release even better?

One of the best ways to contribute and help ensure that Release 4 is the best version yet is to assist with testing. Another great way is to help with items such as the Release Notes. There is a r4 branch in the release-notes repository with a work-in-progress PR.
