I am referring to the ChangeLog entry on each snapshot item on the
cygwin snapshot web page. This lists the ChangeLog differences since
the last snapshot. There is also a diffs file since the last snapshot
which contains changes to the ChangeLog.

ChangeLog file or diff file available. This has been a feature of
the snapshots page since the beginning.
