How To Stay On Top Of New Features With Each Code Upgrade?

I'm wondering if Aruba is any better/easier than CIsco in somehow making their new features that come with each release of controller/AP/management code digestable to those running the network. I get that the release notes are supposed to have an overview of each, but too often pretty significant new functionality is reduced to a bullet point, and the online help can be anemic for substance. Pretty soon if you're not careful (especially if your busy), a few upgrades have gone by and you don't really know what many of the capabilites are under the hood any more... I do like that Meraki kind of puts it all in your face- like so:

What's a busy admin to do? How do you not get buried by everything new that comes along at update time?

So it sounds like you want something "quicker" than the release notes?

Not so much as quicker, but more depth and sense of impact.
