What is a changelog?
Divi is regularly updated to add new features, improve existing features, fix bugs, and occasionally patch a security issue. The Divi changelog lists all the updates that have been made to the files within the Divi theme.

Do I need to have the latest Divi version?
If your site is already built and you do not need the new features that come with an update then you do not actually need to update the Divi Theme. With so many WordPress plugins available and different hosting environments it’s impossible to ensure 100% compatibility for everyone, so updating Divi Theme can cause conflicts and issues.
How do I know what version of Divi I have?
To view your version of DIvi you can navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on the Theme Details link in your WordPress dashboard. If a new version is available, you can click the Update now link. Updates will also appear in the dashboard menu updates section.
