It happened before, that when I update an entry in the database the What's new field is emptied, also when nothing has changed in that field.
Sometimes I add one character (space) at the end of a line, thinking to prevent this, but that doesn't help.
For instance PhraseExpress that I updated today https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2208
Please click on the update history and you wil see that I often had to enter the data in this field again.
Can anyone confirm this?
Hope that I explained the problem correctly in english :)

Yes, when version only changed but nothing changed in the "What's new?" field, change-log disappears

@Ennovy: An update of the version number always clears the "what's new?"-field.
Simply copy the text and paste it into the field with a second change if you want it unchanged.

That's what I am doing already, but I thought it was a bug or something.

I have verified that this is indeed the implemented behaviour and not a bug. The idea being if it's a new version, the old changelog shouldn't apply and should be cleared.

The logic is this: If (new version not equal old version) and (new changelog equals old changelog), clear changelog.

If this behaviour is undesirable, it can be disabled. But I thought it's pretty reasonable to ensure the old changelog does not persist if the version number is updated.

I understand the reason of this behaviour and the logic. IMHO you don't have to disable it.
Thanks for clarifying!
