    Updated software


    Thing are working just fine on my xubuntu edgy eft machine, and I'd like to keep it that way. Synaptic tells me that there are several new updates to my software, such as a 6.2 version to Xorg, a 3.2 update to gnupg, etc., and it tells me a little about what each package is.

    But nowhere have I been able to find any information about what specifically has been done to upgrade the packages.

    I need a reason to change the software, something more than an assumption that newer is better. I'm sure this information exists somewhere, but doesn't seem to be referenced from any of the *buntu documents or webpages.

    And could we have link to this info from Synaptic? This small change would make a big difference in convenience.

    you need to take a look at the changelogs. Go to http://packages.ubuntu.com/ , search for the package you want, select it, then scroll down to the bottom for changelog. Here is the one for gnupg
