We’re excited to announce our official Developer Changelog, which will serve as the source of truth for all important changes to our APIs and other developer products. This changelog should be your first stop to stay in the know as an app developer.
To help you narrow down on the specific types of changes you’d like to know about, we’ve added the ability to filter through the updates using tags. These tags cover everything from API-specific updates, to new developer previews, to deprecations, and more.
The Developer Changelog comes with some other helpful features. It highlights which changes are considered breaking and require action. A new section in the changelog allows you to track scheduled changes if you missed the original announcement. And the ability to follow the changelog’s RSS feed lets you incorporate it into your own daily workflows.
Check out the new Developer Changelog, and sign up to get updates by email, so all the latest changes are sent right to your inbox.

Is the email notification supposed to be working? I've signed up multiple email addresses some time ago and haven't been getting any notifications when there's an update (unless it only sends if it's a breaking change?).
during the Unite Key Note there was some Checkout Apps API metioned, I think the example was recharge. Is there any detail about how and when this will be publicly available?
Is there an endpoint available for getting an enumeration of API changes in a format like JSON?
Having the human-readable summaries in plaintext (via email, Shopify documentation, and RSS feeds) is very useful. But after seeing an example of a very easy-to-parse (programmatically) changeset elsewhere, I could imagine that something similar for Shopify API changes could help developers with proactively checking (in a more automated fashion) for possible breaking changes to their apps.
