Where does one find embedded driver release notes?

I see there is a new driver for my MF box.

17.40.2815.1009-180214a-325217c-aes.zip

What I do not find is any sort of release notes hiding nearby or even inside this 540MB file.

How am I supposed to decide whether I should use this, or stick with

17.30.1075-170830a-317566c-aes.zip

Without release notes?

 

What changed? Will it make my R-series less of a baconator? Will it turn it into a fearsome game machine

(Why the drivers include game adverts for *embedded* hardware is another story.)

 

To check:

Go to: Drivers & Support

Manually Select Your Driver

Step 1 Select "Embedded Graphics"

Step 2 Select "Radeon Embedded" (only choice here)

Step 3 Select "R-Series 3rd Gen formely codenamed Merlin Falcon

Step 4 Select "Windows 10 - 64 Bit"

Step 5 let's go!

 

Stare in awe at the complete lack of release notes.

It is also worth pointing out that 17.30.1075 etc has disappeared from the "Previous Embedded GPU and APU drivers"
