When clicking on the admin notice that there is an update available, it would be interesting to see a short changelog with a link to the complete changelog of the upgrade besides the two download buttons

Example with the 2.8.5.

  • A fix for the Trackback Denial-of-Service attack that is currently being seen.
  • Removal of areas within the code where php code in variables was evaluated.
  • Switched the file upload functionality to be whitelisted for all users including Admins.

This is a duplicate of #18742 and the linked ones on that ticket. Essentially this was implemented after the update as opposed to before it.
