3 people give positive feedback and the update is automatically pushed
from updates-testing to updates despite atleast one feedback to the
contrary at


The UI changes certainly would be visible without any user feedback. The
buttons getting removed from the toolbar as well as smart folders were
immediately visible within minutes. Anyone with significant amount of
email would probably run into the indexing issue soon as well.

Note that the update indicates it is a security issue but doesnt explain
what the security fix is nor does it indicate what other major changes
are there. No notes has been entered to assist the testers. I don't
think the onus can be placed entirely on potential testers to provide
feedback within a week. That is just finger pointing and doesn't help
address such problems or even mitigate it.
