Yes, the "changed files" package contains a ZIP named "2.0.17_to_2.0.18.zip" with only the files changed on this release.
Hope that helps.
We may be mis-understanding each other. I probably could have worded it better, I appologize.
The files contained in the "2.0.17_to_2.0.18.zip" package contain a large amount of files, some of which did not change at all from 2.0.17 to 2.0.18.
(i.e. "/includes/db.php", that file is in the release even though there we no changes made to that file from the previous release).
Those files should not be included in the release if they did not change.
I know there are at least a few other files that are in that release that shouldn't be.
What I'm hoping for is another release that truely contains only the files that have changed from the previous release.
