Lack of notification

If I edit my answer to a question to add substantially new information, will the user who posted the original question be notified of it automatically, or do I have to leave a comment on the question to draw their attention?

(If the latter, a checkbox to the effect of "Also notify the asker of this edit" in the edit form may be a desirable feature.)
