I'm not sure we're going to be providing that since there really isn't much of an upgrade path from 3.0 to 3.1 outside of the database but you could just do a diff with something like winmerge between the 3.0 prosilver and the 3.1 prosilver.

What do you mean by "not much of an upgrade path" ? I'm sure the template files changed a lot. css inlcuded.. Are you not going to provide a changelog at all?

No not really, the comparison between 3.0.12 and 3.1.0-a3 is 7.5 MB
You really don't want to do that by hand with code changes.

Sorry I dont mean to be a pest here. I'm not sure I'm explaining my self.
This means there is no support/upgrade from 3.0.1x to 3.1? I just cant believe there is no change-log available for prosilver template.

The changes are too much.

There is an automatic update package which will take care of the update. But that won't work if you are not using subsilver2 or prosilver.

OK I see. Still not a good news though. What about codechanges for 3.1alpha1, 2 etc ? is that available? template only.

I don't know if it is possible to compare a specific folder on GitHub, but here are the comparaisons between each version, since 3.0.12 (3.1.0-a4 is not tagged yet as it should be released tomorrow).

I'm not sure it would make a whole lot of sense for us to have provided this. It's Alpha software after all. Once we go beta then from the first beta forward it would probably make sense to look at providing the code changes. But as illustrated in the post above you can do this yourself anyways on github.
