Updates: Clearly describe what’s been “updated”



Updates: Provide clearly-understandable plain-language description of what’s been changed / “fixed”. “Fixed” in quotes because sometimes that may not be how users see it.

For example: v0.22.12 just showed up. Clicking the “Details” button displays

“Brave 0.22.12 More details: https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/releases/tag/v0.22.12 dev”

None of that is clickable. Further, copying and pasting “https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/releases/tag/v0.22.12 dev” generates an error because there’s a gratuitous space between v.0.22.12 and dev. Once I delete that space, I find myself on a github.com page with a list of links but zero details about what’s new or changed.

Brave is free. Brave is in development. And – did I forget – Brave is free. I get it. But

FOLKS AT BRAVE: Allow users control over timing / installation of updates.


Hi @redbike9,

It show the info about what’s change on the new version if you use the stable version (currently on 0.21.24). Both on Details at update notification and on GitHub https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/releases/tag/v0.21.24dev.

AFAIK, these info only shows for stable version, and not for beta and developer version (since it’s always get updated).

Is this what you asking for? https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/10863

Also note, that likely you’re using the beta version (0.22.x releases) that will get updated very often than the stable version.



Thanks for the reply.

v0.21.24 was/is unusable because of out-of-control scrolling, a problem that’s well-documented in comments.

v0.22.11 / v0.22.12 appear to have somewhat attenuated this problem.
