how do I find out what changes were made in new kernel releases?

I just picked up kernel 2.6.12-1.1390_FC4. Is there somewhere I can find a description of the changes from the previous kernel? I checked the Fedora site but could only find the downloads.


Thanks

Normally this is a good place to see the change logs:

Another question can be ask about the kernel upgrades? Does it apply to everyone? If my kernel is working fine I dont install the new one well I just dont! Unless it has a bug or is a broken kernel.

If the update is marked Security in the update announcement, you should install it always (before you notice that someone has broken into your system).

To read the changelog in the RPM package (you can do this as an ordinary user):

rpm -q --changelog kernel-2.6.12-1.1390_FC4 | less

For most packages, which only have one version installed, you can use for example

rpm -q --changelog grep | less

Sometimes the fedora-announce emails have additional info, sometimes it's just copied and pasted from the changelog.

Robatino- Thanks for that bit of information. I also was curious about the location of changelogs. I knew it had to be somewhere close.

I didn't know you could read changelogs for most applications with the rpm command. This is good information. I have to try it. Thanks robatino.
