Many apps in the Jolla store provide a changelog for every new version. It helps to quickly see newly added features, which bugs got fixed or even notice things you don't want so you can make an informed decision to not update to the new version.

Jolla itself doesn't use this at the moment, so I ask to provide changelogs for all apps developed by Jolla.

Jolla usually provides detailed changelogs with every release note.

Which isn't all that useful when Jolla updates an app in between Sailfish releases, like the Utilities app yesterday.

I support this request. Even though Jolla publishes detailed changelogs here and provides links to GitHub (if available), it's not a very professional behaviour to leave no such information in Jolla Store (and a bad example to 3rd party developers). Such a changelog should mention the highlights of an update - whoever wants a more detailed one can still read through the given sources.

It would be interesting to know, why Jolla hasn't done it the "right way" so far :-)

It's even more important when they state things like "Refreshed layouts for Jolla Store, Clock, Email" and there's no difference to be seen.

Quote from @cybette somewhere in the Maps comments in the store:

We're looking into a standardized and automated way to generate the changelogs so they can be more consistent.

So I guess it'll come at some point.
