It seems that there is no facility to show or add a change-log for app updates. So if an update is made a developer has to change the description field to feature the change-log which I think it shouldn't be like that.

A change log facility would be needed.

perhaps parsed from the rpm %changelog

The SDK does not have any nice GUI to fill in the %changelog, I doubt average SDK developer would make use of it.

perhaps this should be added to SDK and have as requirement, so that people can follow the nicely the changes that each app has...

it should also implement SILENT in entries, (which don't appear in the GUI)

I don't think the %changelog and the changelog field in the harbour upload from, should be mandatory to be filled in. It should be the developers decision, when ever it's worth to mention changes. That this change log (if provided) is also visible in Store app, is a reasonable request.

I would agree with @AL13N, that it should be mandatory. I see no difference between app with no description and update with no changelog. I need to know what I install/update to. Maybe update brings privacy changes or etc

would it be possible to put this in rpm %changelog ?

Thanks for the answer, good to know that this has been acknowledged.. Still waiting for this to get 'roadmap'ed so I guess question will stay open until that 'new future' is a bit closer ;)

Please, still keep some field that is visible to harbour test engineers only. There is info only they should know such as test accounts needed for trying the app.
