Hi,

by reading some kind of changelog.

If I google: xubuntu changelog 18.04

The first hit is: https://wiki.xubuntu.org/releases/18.04/release-notes

When the link was opened I searched the site for: enc

It does find the word 'encryption', but there's no hint regarding the
issue.

The site includes a link to "The main Ubuntu release note": 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BionicBeaver/ReleaseNotes

When the link was opened I also searched this site for: enc

Success under "Other base system changes since 16.04 LTS":

"The installer no longer offers the encrypted home option using
ecryptfs-utils. It is recommended to use full-disk encryption instead
for this release. (1756840)"

Regards,
Ralf
