    where we use 'has/have' and where 'was' in past tenses

    Hi,

    I'm writing a short user-manual in English at work and need your help out there please.

    where should I use the following:
    Was released.
    Has been released.

    For example:
    "The company has released a new software last night"
    or
    "The company released a new software last night"

    "The new software has been released last night"
    or
    "The new software was released last night"


    thanks in advance

    "New software has been released"; "The company has released new software"; "The company released new software last night".

    "The company released new software last night" wouldn't be relevant for very long. I might put it in an email but not in a user manual.
