The tracker is the "patch and bug tracker." There are links to it on the
left side of every page on the site (except the tracker itself, which
doesn't display the usual Rockbox site menu). I don't know if the
current version of the patch actually demonstrates the art resizing in a
real-use situation yet, as I haven't tried it myself.

The "delta" on that page actually represents binary size change. The
changelog on the front page shows the changes from one revision of
Rockbox to the next, and the "Current Build" is rebuilt with every
revision change that would actually affect Rockbox binaries (so not
revision changes that only touch the manual, for example). So if your
previous copy was r18715 and your current one is r18740 in the version
number display, all changes in the changelog after 18715 and up to and
including 18740 are in your build. Not all of these will affect you (for
example, if they only apply to the Gigabeat F and you have an iPod, they
aren't actually in your build, as they were stripped during the compile
process) but it's the only listing available. It would be nearly
impossible to maintain a list for every player in a "non-technical"
format that was reasonable up to date and accurate.

For a much, much more general list you can see the MajorChanges wiki
page, but as the title suggests it only covers changes considered
"major" and it's simply sorted by date.
