Oh, I didn't explain well enough. There is an icon displayed in the 
first column if a newer version of the extension is available. If you 
click that icon you can a confirmation dialogue that shows the commit 
messages of the versions between your installation and the latest.
That's not a hidden feature to me.

Hmmm.. In the previous EM (the "new" EM in 4.5 - 4.7) you could install 
older versions if you went to the TER list (not the installed extension 
list), right clicked on an extension and selected the option to install 
older versions. That's what you call a hidden feature...

Ernesto already explained how to do this. The version number in the list 
has a small arrow next to it to indicate that there is more to be found 
behind that link.
