https://github.com/mozilla/testpilot-containers/milestone/6 was the AMO Launch milestone. Please, will the launch be mentioned at https://testpilot.firefox.com/experiments/containers or amongst the Latest updates at https://testpilot.firefox.com/experiments?

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/versions/?page=1#version-4.0.1 no release notes, will notes be provided?
