We already have multiple requests to add links in the news, see #760416
and #756952. Those will be fixed soon.

Are you referring instead to the full changelogs that can be downloaded in
the "Versioned links" panel ?

In any case, Distro Tracker is 100% Python and I don't see us relying on
libparse-debianchangelog-perl to generate pretty changelogs. So this
wishlist is likely to sit here for a long time.
