 URL, say, `about:changelog` or something for the "View Changelog" item.
 > Sorry for the confusion, you are right. Having something like
 `about:changelog` is ideal. So, we can have the same layout we have in
 `about:tor` at `about:tbupdate` but with a new title.

 Yes, something like that.

 > And then, advanced (and curious) users can go deep on the changes
 clicking on `View Changelog`.
 > Do we need a mockup for `about:changelog`? is that markdown/markup?

 Dunno. I have not thought about how fancy we want to have it. My first
 intuition is to just "cut out" what we have on `about:tbupdate` today and
 display it similarly on `about:changelog`...

 > Orthogonal: Do you think we need/should have a place to have it on our
 website? I think that could be useful to 1. have release notes outside the
 blog 2. have a centralized place to look for this notes.

 Yup, sounds like a good idea to me. Do you mind opening a ticket (bonus
 points for suggestions where on the website this should be shown. :) )?
