I could see that the kanban guide for scrum teams got updated in January 2021. Is there a revisions page (similar to Scrum guide revisions) mentioning all the changes which have happened on the kanban guide for scrum teams?

Hi Linz Philip, the changes are to align with the 2020 Version of the Scrum Guide and a revision history has not been created at this time.

I started to do a deep dive into the changes between the September 2019 and January 2021 revisions of the Kanban Guide for Scrum Teams, but after a top level review, the only changes that I really saw were terminology updates. The biggest ones involved the use of the term "Development Team" in the Kanban Guide, which was changed to either "Developers" or "Scrum Team", depending on the context. There were also changes regarding "roles", which became "accountabilities" in the 2020 Scrum Guide revision.

If there's enough interest, I suppose I could take another deeper look at it, but I didn't see much value in doing so. It would be nice if published more detailed revision histories, changelogs, or even redlines between versions of their publications.
