Do you expect them to revert to just dumping raw ChangeLog files with hundreds of changes *per project/component* onto users, instead of having a nicely formatted summary that just highlights the most visible changes they are susceptible to care about? comes to mind as a textbook example of what not to do. Compare GNOME's release notes with for example.

Their "we have hundreds of changes, we can't list everything" catchphrase may sound silly to some of you, but 1) it is entirely truthful 2) it is good marketing.
