I'm not sure if Adept has this feature, I doubt it though, but in
Synaptic you can download the packages changelog and look at what's been
I don't use Adept it's just not good enough IMO, Synaptic has many more
features and I find it easier to navigate and get things done.
I also use a package called "update-notifier" (it's works with Synaptic)
which, as you guessed, notifies me of updates and shows the changelogs
in the same window.
The changelogs are located at http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/
so if you want to see the changelog for Adept you'd go to
or any other version.
