Thanks for the message,

i would like you to think about the possibility to mention the target build (*) of the catalogue after successful updates below future announcements like that:

Spider SAM              
Software Services           1.2004.1.861

A tiny improvement to make the us admins even more safe in uodating catalogues.
* Version before updating to 05/2020 catalogue
