Lightroom: More complete list of bug fixes

It would be great if the official release notes could include more complete lists of bug fixes.  As it stands now, we have to go to outside of Adobe, e.g. to Victoria Bampton's announcements, to get more complete lists.

For example, these 6.5 fixes were listed in Victoria's announcement but not in Adobe's:

- Sync wasn’t automatically being logged in on first launch.
Rename failed if raw+jpeg pairs were copied to a second location.
The tethering toolbar wouldn’t move.
The video cache was not correctly limited to the size set in Preferences.
Merge failed when source photos were virtual copies.
Droplets no longer worked with Export Actions.
Impromptu slideshow gave error message “video support is disabled”.

These 6.4 fixes were listed in Victoria's announcement but not in Adobe's:

Import didn’t work if you weren’t signed in
Certain dates couldn’t be entered in Edit Capture Time dialog (1966, 1969, 1999, etc.)
Videos wouldn’t play on some systems
Slideshow module wouldn’t work on some systems
- Preset paths to Home, Documents, Pictures and Movies/Videos folders have been added to the destination pop-up menu in the Export dialog

Ditto for 6.3.

Why isn’t this proper list linked to from the Lightroom release notes then? Apple does exactly the same thing with their OS minor and patch releases: small headliner list, link to longer detailed list.

Typical users shouldn’t have to hunt for a link on a community forum or on Adobe’s website to find out of an annoying bug in one of many pieces of Adobe software has been fixed. 

There are few things more frustrating than noticing a bug, finding out a new release happens to be available, noting it doesn’t mention whether it addresses said bug, trying to update, and still encountering the bug.

I should note, there are other fixes beyond those on my list.  In my list I included bugs I'd seen reported here.
