Changelog of package updates

I really miss a changelog when nuget tells me there are updates.

Maybe an extra link besides project site, that's tied directly to the version. Where author can put the link to the changelog wherever it may be.

This is a good point, but on the other hand, there are already so many links on the dialog. IMO, the project site should also list the change log for their latest version.

I second that point. Currently it is hard work finding out about changes brought by a package update, especially if you are updating from say version 1.3 to 1.6 and you have to check changes logs of versions 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6.

Although it is probably a lot more work, I think ideally authors could includes change logs each time they package a new version, and then we could have the option of seeing an aggregated change log of all versions between the currently installed version and the updated version.
