Be aware that once you've updated to the latest preview release, the history information mentioned by mchain
is no longer available.
You've in essence just installed a new OS so there aren't yet any updates. :)

Okay, what did they add, since that link does not show anything?

Never mind it worked by pasting the link in a new tab.

If you were using Chrome, all you needed to do was hover your mouse over the link and this is what you would have seen:
