VLC looses audio

can't think of any reason for this problem.

Sure you do! Subscribe to fedora-package-announce, use the GUI
Software Updater, or display the package changelogs. Example:

rpm --query --changelog cairo | less

And you don't need to be "root" for that.

If it's something already installed, as most updates generally are, then
you can do:

rpm -qi selinux-policy

If it's not something that's already installed, as some updates which
replace something else may be, then you can do:

yum info selinux-policy

That'll tell you what they are, in as much as the packager described
them. If you want to find out the changes since the last time, then
it's a changelog query you want, like Michael said. I think you can
also do that sort of thing through yum, but I'm not sure.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.

yum-changelog - Yum plugin for viewing package changelogs before/after updating

I tried your example and it gave me nothing I understand. It is
possible I will never know what cairo does.

Simply put Cairo is a graphics rendering application. Firefox, for
example, uses Cairo.

Argh, Karl, don't pretend you're stupid. You asked to learn about what
updates do, not what the packages itself contain. To display a package
description at a low level, run this
instead (or the short options, see "man rpm"):

rpm --query --info cairo

Example:

$ rpm -qi cairo | tail -7
Cairo is a vector graphics library designed to provide high-quality
display and print output. Currently supported output targets include
the X Window System, OpenGL (via glitz), in-memory image buffers, and
image files (PDF, PostScript, and SVG). Cairo is designed to produce
identical output on all output media while taking advantage of display
hardware acceleration when available (e.g. through the X Render
Extension or OpenGL).
