Somewhat helpful to get this information before installation is the menu
option "download changelog" in the Debian Sarge version of Synaptic
(currently 0.53.4-1, don't know in sid). Combined with the "upgradable"
package listing can it be used to read the interesting changelogs right
before the upgrade. (no package multi-selection possible though...)
Maybe this feature could be implemented also in the Ubuntu version?
PS: ok, after re-reading my text, I actually think this is not a typical
"user" feature, and probably only useful during pre-release times... ;-)
I quite like it anyway.
