While you can now find all of the supporting documentation for the new QRC 3 2021 release of SAP HANA Cloud in the SAP Help Portal, here are a few highlights you may be interested in.

For this release, the new SAP HANA Cloud What’s New Viewer debuts. This new format for delivering 'what's new' information allows you to interact with the content using filtering and sorting controls. You can examine your results in either a tabular or chronological view, export them to CSV and PDF, and share them. If you are already familiar with the SAP BTP What's New Viewer, you're going to feel right at home with the SAP HANA Cloud What's New Viewer.


And here are just a few highlights offered in the documentation for the QRC 3 2021 release:
