How to update (for Sysadmins)

It means that Experiments can now belong to a Category and Resources can now have a Status.
Categories and Status are defined at the team level by the Admin. There are Status for Experiments, and Status for Resources, so the Admin Panel now shows two tab: Categories and Status, and they each contain a section for Experiments or Resources.

This release also contains a few minor bugfixes and enhancements, as always.
With the new categories and status, the Admin should look into the Admin Panel to add a few Categories or Status.
