Description

It would be useful to provide version informations in the themes and plugins auto-updates email notification.

Probably something like:

The following plugins were successfully updated:

  • Hello Dolly (from 1.7 to 1.7.1)

Change History (5)

Quoting from the referenced GitHub issue:

Including the version updated FROM would help admins manually rollback if they later discover the update causes problems on the site (it's pretty likely they won't remember what version they were running before the update).

Further to discussions on #50268,

I agree it would sound more professional to change the word "Howdy", to "Hello".

So instead of something like

<?php
                        $body[]  = sprintf(
                                /* translators: %s: Home URL. */
                                __( 'Howdy! Failures occurred when attempting to update plugins/themes on your site at %s.', 'wp-autoupdates' ),
                                home_url()
                        );

We would instead have something like

<?php
                        $body[]  = sprintf(
                                /* translators: %s: Home URL. */
                                __( 'Hello,', 'wp-autoupdates' )
                        );
                        $body[] = "\n";
                        $body[]  = sprintf(
                                /* translators: %s: Home URL. */
                                __( 'Failures occurred when attempting to update plugins/themes on your site at %s.', 'wp-autoupdates' ),
                                home_url()
                        );

@stuffradio thanks!
This is not in this ticket's scope, because there is a bunch of other use of "Howdy!" in WordPress. This should be handled in a dedicated ticket.
For now, let's keep it as it for consistency with other email notification in WordPress core :)
