Whenever I upgrade firmware, I always like to know what bugs it is fixing, what enhancements it will bring (and maybe take away), etc.

I was thinking it'd be nice if there was a sticky listing not only the most recent firmware, but ALL of the firmware revisions. If not the actual binaries, then at least a full list of the changes from v11A to v12A to 18A etc.

Does anybody have this info? Do share!
