I used to be able to read the change comments at least using dev-CraftBukkit [Jenkins]
but the site crashed last night, and now it is back up, a lot of the change reports seem to have disappeared.
As Thermal said, we might have to resort to changing mods again. For instance, our first warp mod was SimpleWarp but it lost its developer for a while. Currently we are using MyWarp but its developer has not been heard from since March (also does MyHome). I have two alternate updates to try, but both come from alternative developers. iChat, Permissions and General all originally had the same developer who we lost last update so the versions we are presently using have all branches by new developers. Luckily, I think they have all updated the mods.
It's a pain, but from what I have seen of the efforts to keep hMod running (or its offshoots kMod and a child of kMod whose name escapes me), Bukkit is still our best bet.
