The Changelog is a section of the Menu which allows the player to be informed of updates and bug fixes within the game. The changelog may not always display updates.
Typically, in old servers, the changelog might not have the current updates and bugfixes. In order to see these "new" updates and bugfixes, the player must be in a new server (which, in that case, it is recommended to use a Private Server).
How to view the Changelog
To view the Changelog, the player must open the "Menu" and select the Changelog button. If the player wishes to view older updates, they must click the "Next" button, as seen at the bottom right. The other button will return to the previous page.
Changes from 2017
Changes from October
>Specialmesh loose items fixed. Support for FileMeshes in unions was dropped, solution is ugly hack.
Changes from September
>No donation caps.
Changes from July
>Fixed sawmax 02L.
>Fixed an issue where player's structure saves would be wiped if the server crashed or is shutdown. This was happening because Roblox fixed the game.OnClose event, which was now causing a second save thread in addition to the autosave thread invoked when the player leaves the game (also fired when the server crashes). The second save thread would fail to collect any instances to save because the first thread already saved everything. If this affected you, complete the online form found at Twitter.com/Defaultio. This form will be open for about a week.
>Added sawmax 02L.
Changes from April
>Fixed dynamite on trees.
Changes from March
>Fixed saving issue for new players.
>Patched a slot duplication remote exploit.
>This morning due to a version controling issue and an update malfunction caused by nothing but my own neglegence, an update that was pushed caused the theming and mechanics from the Winter Event to return, but more harmfully, it caused everyone's money to save as $20,000,000 instead of their actual funds. The most efficient and least harmful to players way to address this is to revert the entire game state back 10 hours to before this update. Unfortuantely, if you made any progress in any server in the last 10 hours, regardless of if it was a broken server, that progress will be reverted. I know this is frustrating, and I'm deeply sorry. Contact me through Twitter if you lost any major progress during this time and I will try to help you.

>Okay I think the whole physical properties thing is figured out. Behavior should be almost unchanged.

Changes from September
>Made ground thicker at wood dropoff
>Network owner of wood sweeper moving parts is now set to server; should fix most power issues
>Patched slot resetting which allowed a save duplication exploit and also interrupted the autosave [c]sycle and could have lead to data loss

>Bridge movement is smoother
>Mulitple blueprints can be placed in a consecutively without going back to the blueprint window
>Ensured that when a player gets up from a vehicle, network ownership of it's content is reset to server synchronously by remotely requesting ownership of bed items in batches all at once rather than invidividually per item. This should do a lot to fix vehicle bugging when players get up
>Hitched trailers are no longer draggable

>Fixed blueprints progress not showing
>Increased loose wood despawn time from 4 minutes to 12.5 minutes
>Network ownership for loaded planks are set to server
>Changed the order of operations when loading a slot while another slot is currently loaded. Now loading one slot implies cleanup of the current slot before the new slot is loaded. If the save of the current slot fails, load is aborted. If the save is successful but load is aborted by player the player is left without a slot loaded. This prevents a duplication exploit and maybe address issues with data loss on exit.
