I have seen some of these discussion this community has, most of them are not up to the quality to let the Janitor at Bioware respond to, most are not worth the paper they are printed on.

As evidence by this thread, they do post the most recent patch notes, both on the websites and through the launcher.

yes they are on the launcher, and the site but if the forums are supposed to be the place to get SWTOR info it should be posted clearly on the forums. It should also be listed in the Dev tracker. Posting it on the website does not show on the dev tracker.

They *should* be in game in a window somewhere, in addition to the discussion on these boards.
Not to derail this thread, but this is just one of the many quality of life issues that we've come to expect from MMOs these days and that SWTOR misstepped on.

We should be able to read the notes directly in the launcher while the patcher is patching. I'm not going to ever click links in the launcher. List them out for us to scroll through.

And BW highlights patch notes from previous patches as being part of later patches. The past couple patches have had a line in the notes commenting on an addition of new, high-end space missions which I have had since before these patches.

To be honest I'm used to a pop up window appearing when you log into the game for the 1st time after a new patch that details the changes and forces you to click it away to get to you character selection screen (some games included just before your EULA agreement pop up that you had to agree to before you could log in).

They need to say "hey we might fix this. Or we might do that". Would suit them a lot more.
