I am not a fan of using paid-only links, and will not sign up for the service. However, it is interesting that Stanford also offers a course by this name: gse-ldt.stanford.edu/students/ma-projects/…

comment Usage of “since” in “Since the last release, we have integrated feature X”
Since would only be ambiguous in this case if the statement had been made in the past-perfect tense: ie: "this feature has been integrated since"; the fact that past tense was used indicates that the event predated the time span.
