Users can easily filter your changelog page using those labels.

When a new changelog entry is published, a red notification dot will show on the widget indicating new release notes.

You can also filter the changelog widget to only show entries for specified label IDs. This is great for when you have separate products and want to display a different changelog widget for each.
