You don’t strictly need it.

While @wjt is correct in that you don’t strictly need release descriptions, I’d strongly recommend considering it!

Release descriptions help keep your users informed about what’s in an update, and can make it more likely that they install an update if they don’t have automatic updates enabled. Plus, it’s another opportunity to connect with your users and keep them on top of what’s new. Even if it’s just an automated version bump, it can help communicate that it’s not going to add or remove features from their current version.
