Steps to reproduce the issue

  1. Install fresh j3.2.0 on localhost with php5.4.3 and MySQL 5.5.20. I used the new multilingual install feature and the following languages: English (GB), FR, HU and Afrikaans.
  2. Open an article, add a tag and a version note.
  3. SAVE.
  4. Click the version button and compare the 2 versions.

Expected result

When comparing, the tag added as described above in Step 2 should be indicated as a change.

Actual result

There is no field showing tags at all in the comparison.

Version history acts on the 'base content' fields. As tags are an 'extension' to the UCM base content fields they aren't tracked by user history. Whilst this is inconvenient given the current code structure this won't be changed in the foreseeable future.
