Our team is running a large number of courses using Azure Labs with a baseline Data Science Virtual Machine set up for our students. We do our best to manually check changes made to the DSVM template every time we set up a new course, but are wondering if there is an easier way. Is there a place where updates to DSVM (and Azure Labs platform, as well) are routinely released and documented?

The DSVM information on releases is located here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/machine-learning/data-science-virtual-machine/release-notes. Lab Services uses the standard Azure DSVM. As for Lab Services updates the blog https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/azure-lab-services-blog/bg-p/AzureLabServicesBlog is the best place for updates.
