It may sound strange, but I can't find a way to understand what was changed in a change.

Let's say I added a small roundabout, which is not yet on aerial image:

I'm looking on this page, and my intuition says me, there should be two buttons to switch, or two pictures 'was before change', 'become after change'.

And no matter how much I've searched, I can't find this.

Achavi ("a changeset viewer") is probably your best bet right now, at least for small changesets.

Nice, thank you. Too sad there is no link to this on openstreetmap 'change' page.

Something like this should be built into iD!

I had no idea there was an "osmhv" still working anywhere, hence my "probably your best bet right now" caveat above.
