    I'm going to bring this up again, because it is not only important, but imperative that administrators' know exactly what has changed in a Plesk release.

    I just installed Plesk 8.2 fresh install yesterday, and at the end of the day there was an update available.

    Trying to find out what changed from the morning to the afternoon is nearly impossible.

    Upon looking at what packages it downloaded I found:

    psa-hotfix3 8.2.0 rhel4.build82070807.17i586
    psa-locale-base-en-US 8.2.0 rhel4.build82070807.17noarch
    psa-qmail 1.03 rhel4.build82070807.17i586
    psa-selinux 8.2.0 rhel4.build82070807.17noarch
    psa-updates 8.2.0 rhel4.build82070807.17noarch

    Fair enough, but:

    1. Okay, but what does this hotfix3 actually fix.

    2. What changed in the language files.

    3. What changed in the qmail configuration.

    4. Did it fix the problems I was previously experiencing with selinux.

    5. What is psa-updates, how much more generic can you get.

    The changelog in the Downloads section used to be useful, now it's full of advertising half-wit BSYT speak instead of useful information.

    Instead of calling that a changelog, how about calling that changelog-overview, and keeping the changelog as a real changelog.

    Best Regards,
