• Why no changelogs for Arch and Antergos packages


    I wonder why there are no changelogs available when updates to software are being made available in the repos. It’s quite an issue since you never know what has been updated when the Update Manager in Antergos shows updates as available. It’s also quite an effort, with not always success, to find out what changes have been made.

    It would be so much more user-friendly if the changelogs are also published together with the updates and that they are available in the Update Manager software.

    Antergos & Windows 7 Pro | Asrock x370 K4 - Ryzen 1600 - GTX 950 (replace with Radeon 570/580/Vega) - 16GB DDR4 2400 - Samsung 960 pro 512GB (Windows) + Samsung 850 EVO 256 GB (Antergos) + 2x 2TB HGST HDD + more storage - RM550x Gold PSU

  • @EarthMind - I wondered about that as well, especially when it comes to more major applications and items like the kernel.

  • Arch Devs you know they want you doing this by hand ;)
    There is a option also for pacman it works with

    pacman -Qc *packagename*
    

    But almost no package have information there… because the dev do not put it there.

  • @joekamprad oops, but he wants to know “what has been updated etc” that can be seen through it and is GUI, but ok, i understand.
