This is an example paragraph. Did this work out? How does this new line look?

As we evolve as a team the software footprint increases in complexity. This article aims to provide a baseline of third-party software components (and the relevant versions for the current season). The versions listed here relate to the 2018 season (Jan 2018 +) and we can expect at least some of these to shift during the build season.

NOTE: if any updates are made to this page during the build season please notify the entire software team by email when you make the change.
