Thanks for the feedback on patch notes! We can definitely work to make sure it's very clear when we post the public test versions of the notes by calling it out more obviously in that post, and we'll work on making sure that the forums know when the final live notes are available (yes, as others have mentioned, they are available in the launcher and on the website, but we can make sure a post gets into the dev tracker, too, for those who prefer that outlet).
The patch notes are linked, in a single small line from the launcher. they aren't actually on the launcher.
They *should* be in game in a window somewhere, in addition to the discussion on these boards.
And yes, what the other guy said, please fix ilum, at least this sort of broken is not the crazy exploitive broken it was before. This is just broken.
