 Thank you for your feedback.

We released this feature as part of the functionality in April 2019 as part of the ONE version features. LCS will now surface an announcement when a new release is made available along with a link to the whats new documentation. In addition, there is a new feature that will enable you to gauge the impact of the changes in the form of an impact analysis report. It will compare your usage against the areas where the maximum code churn is to tell you the areas where you need to focus your testing in.

Please refer to the following link for more information.

Thank you for your feedback.

We are not considering the suggestion at this time due to the following reason: This is a corner case where due to some issue during package deployment the environment needs to be restarted. For non-production environments like sandbox and dev/test you have the option to stop and start the environment from LCS (which is equivalent to a reboot) or do a restart of the service as well. For production environment, if there is an issue someone from Microsoft Tier 1 is engaged to investigate the issue and roll forward or rollback. In that case a reboot of the machine might not help. 

Sincerely,
