Frequently when there is a Logos update, many resources are listed as updated. Is there any way to determine what changes were made to a resource when it is updated? It would be helpful to know if these are corrections in spelling or punctuation, new hyperlinks, additional contents, additional tags, feature additions (such as pagination). or other changes.

Documentation of every change/typo would be onerous, and how really useful would it be to categorize the changes as you have indicated? The spelling, punctuation corrections (typos) would be so boring because you would have picked them out yourself and carried on reading without missing any of the context! But how many would be relevant to your reading, anyway, including changes to reverse interlinears because of word order or incorrect lemma/LN number?

You may get to know of feature changes when a resource is called out in a thread for missing hyperlinks, chapters, and other major omissions/mistakes.

Many updates affect monographs and their change to one of the new resource Types. You will see opinions about these changes in various threads because they affect their utility. Many potential changes are documented at the Faithlife Feedback site.

If you are a Connect subscriber, do you track the monthly Temporary resources that find their way into (and out of) your Library? The 14 for this month were a repeat from several months ago (and this happens frequently). I know because they retain the month tags I gave them when they first appeared.
