I mean the going away of the old alsa controls that opened from the audio applet.
The first time I saw it, I thought some package had failed to install/build. Only after, on IRC, I was told it was NEW.
Many Old users upgrading will be bitten by this feeling, trying to find where to set the volume levers (even though most never needed it, and there always alsamixer[gui]).

Maybe I wasnt clear here:
This is not meant FOR Devs, but for testers and users.
Of course this information should be filled by the maintainers of the packages or who makes the changes.
High/Critical bugs and Major changes are already mention on Release notes and http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/jaunty/alpha* pages.
What I'm saying here, is that doesnt have enough detail, for those of us who keep doing regular updates.

Hope this clears any confusion my OP email gave.
