It appears it has been asked before (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/206359499-changelog, and https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/206000289-plugin-changelog) but not really answered. Can you start publishing a changelog for every release? Even a set of issue numbers or notes on the release in GitHub would be nice. For instance, the just released (https://github.com/JetBrains/intellij-scala/releases/tag/2016.3.5) version has almost 250 commits and I have a hard time knowing what changed. This is important for rolling out updates for teams.
