Is there a list of changes available for the nightly releases?

I've had a look through the installation folder, and there is a release notes readme, but this only contains information between major releases, not what has changed each day.

Just a simple list of updates that have been applied (bug numbers would do), so that users know whether it is worth updating to the latest nightly, and if so, what is worth retesting.

take a look at the checkins mailing list archives
(http://lists.slimdevices.com/lists/listinfo/checkins/) on a given day for the
information on what is changed on any given day. nightly builds are done
automatically, and sometime have no changes at all.

Your best bet for that granularity of change information is to browse
the archives of the checkins list
(http://lists.slimdevices.com/archives/checkins/). The checkin comments
should reflect what's been changed from day to day.

And, after spending a couple of hours compiling a change log for 5.2
based on checkin comments from the last couple of months, you can bet
that I'm going to be even more of a stickler for checking comments to be
coherent and informative. :-)
