Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

For example, in If you just witnessed tactical downvoting, is it a reportable offense? Jeff announces that the window for reverting a downvote has been reduced. Larger features will make it to a blog entry but a lot of things like this won't.

Think of it as "living release notes". All it would be is a list of changes by date with short descriptions with links to a short description of the change, possibly with a link to something back here (if relevant) and/or the SO blog (again, if relevant).

It'd be nice to keep track of what's changed (and why).

Man, you know how much work that's going to be for me? :) But it's a good idea; visibility/transparency is always welcome! – Jarrod Dixon Aug 28 '09 at 2:47
    
It doesn't have to be a lot of info imho. Jeff's 4 sentences about the tactical downvoting I think is more than sufficient as a description for "Reduced the window where you can undo votes". – cletus Aug 28 '09 at 3:24
    
A changelog of even the minor updates would be nice. – random Aug 28 '09 at 6:07

I have to agree with this.

I often find myself confused when the site is acting different then expected, and unless I read every Meta entry, quickly get lost in the changes. I am extremely impressed at the way and rate Jeff and company implement changes, however even a one liner, similiar to the Virtual Box release notes here would be extremely useful.

It can even be a locked community wiki question on Meta that keeps getting update by the team.
