From http://llbit.se/?p=398

How should I know if I really want to apply an update if I can’t see what it changes? Sure some people might be OK with changing their software without knowing what changes are being made, but I am not.

Changelogs and release notes are important. The user needs to be able to see them, and they should be available before installing any kind of update. If it’s a bugfix update, I want to know which bugs were eliminated. If it’s a security update, I want to know which vulnerabilities were fixed. If it’s a feature update, I want to know which features have been added!

The most logical thing would be to have a link to the changelog right next to the “Upgrade Automatically” button in Wordpress.
