Ever found yourself in the situation where you updated a series of plugins with no apparent issue, only to find out a few days later that something went terribly wrong… But what? Which plugins did i upgrade? Until now, you had to rely on your own note taking or memory.
This plugin keeps track of all changes made to your wordpress structure: core, network, plugins and options, for now. Themes will come soon.
Since version 2.0.0, the log can be exported as .csv.
Nothing special. Activate the plugin and you’re done.

Interested in development?
- fixed a typo provoquing a js error.
- remove reference to external datatables.js and instead have it served locally.
- as the log can be huge, added a few ini_set() to increase the chance that downloading the log does not fail 500.
- Added the possibility to download your log file as .csv (experimental)
- Added an option to completely erase the log (You get a warning beforehand).
- Reduced the amount of log items shown by default (see this thread for context.)
- From now on, user will be able to choose if the log should keep a trace of an option ’s value before it was changed. If active, the log will be much heavier but will contain all details useful for tracing down a problem. Defaulted to false.

- Started adding a lot Core and Network (multisite) event logging.
- Improved logging info: now showing what value(s) changed using array_diff
