I need to find out what happend at certaint time when some of my admins make some plugin updates etc. So i need to check in admin the log of changes, updates etc.

Where can I find that in WP admin?

I have never understood the lack of logged history in WordPress. The core needs something basic for developers to build on with a whole new category of plugins. – WebTechGlobal Jul 18 at 13:13

You can't pull it in wp-admin you actually have to go look at the plugin in wordpress repository and see if they added there or to the plugin author's site for a changelog.

That would be a nice feature for the future.

Thanks. Definitely. Maybe another table in db, but it can come handy in my opinion. At least for admins. – Derfder Dec 2 '12 at 12:36
This doesn't answer the question. The OP asked for a log of plugin updates on his Wordpress, not the plugin's changelog. – Bluu May 28 '15 at 5:08

I don't know if this is the fix for you, but I was looking at a similar problem and I found this plugin. It was updated 2 weeks ago so it might be a good contemporary solution:
