 get updated when information actually has changed.

 ITEM ZAGOR announced his
 LINK("http://rockbox.haxx.se/mail/archive/rockbox-archive-2003-04/0921.shtml",
 linux-kernel patch) for improved FAT performance on Linux, expected to be
 especially appreciated by USB 1.1 users. One measurement during testing
 showed a cutback in time for the first copy from 52 seconds to 0.2...

 ITEM ZAGOR added the "caption backlight" feature, which switches on the
 backlight just before a song change, and keeps it lit for a backlight-timeout
 period into the new song.

 ITEM ZAGOR made the remote control's keys distinguishable from the ordinary
 keys, so that they can now be used even though keylock is enabled.

 accomplish this.
