Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said :

expand the line "2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.6" below the heading "xenial" by clicking on the triangle on the left border.
This will show the changelog and provide a link to a diff file
diff from 2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.5 (in Ubuntu) to 2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.6 (1.9 KiB)

This shows the changes in the source. If you want to know which executable (or library) got changes, you have to find out what is being built from the source files that have been changed.

Can you help with this problem?
