You mean the source code ?

The commercial side keep fairly extensive changelogs, but the open source changelog is pretty much limited to what's in the release notes.

We never plan to add woe to new releases, but occasionally does happen.  Best plan is to test the upgrade on a 'test' box with a copy of the current repository.  There is an RC / current testing release on cvsnt.org/wiki that will be declared stable in the next few days (though I have said that before).

No upgrade ever touches the repository.  But /etc/xinetd.d/cvsnt and /etc/cvsnt/PServer.example may be blown away.
