On a gem overview page on, the gem owner can set five URLs to give a user pointers to more information (Source Code, Documentation, Wiki, Mailing List, and Bug Tracker). Since a major reason to visit the gem overview page is to see the version history, it would be nice if supported a link to a Changelog alongside these five.

As with the others, this data would not need to be in any particular format. It would just be a pointer to additional information about the gem, however the gem owner decided to publish it.

    I agree, I was hoping a separate service could help format/keep track of these but nothing has come up yet. Please feel free to submit a patch! :)

    SourceNinja keeps track of changelog information and can alert you to newer versions o gems as they are released.

    SourceNinja was created specifically with this in mind.
