Tech News is sent on Monday, and the new version is deployed on
Tuesday and Thursday, so it makes more sense to call it a "future

Yes, I mean that the changes will be already deployed at the time of
publication. There are no "Recent changes" this week, but they'll be
in the "Recent changes" next week. That way, users who read Tech News
can test the new features as soon as they learn about them. Otherwise,
they need to wait several days before testing, and they might forget
about it.

Note that this is only for things that don't disrupt people's
workflow. For disruptive changes, we still want to give them advance

I hope this is clearer; let me know if it isn't :)
