A new wordpress release is out and you’d like to know what’s changed? Sure, you can read the changelog, but is that REALLY enough?
Point your interweb box to: http://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/ and then use svn to show you exactly what’s changed. Pick the URLs to the tags that represent the two releases you’d like to compare, and then:
svn diff http://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/3.0.4/ \ http://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/3.0.5/ > ~/tmp/wp-3.0.4_to_3.0.5.txt
Then inspect “~/tmp/wp-3.0.4_to_3.0.5.txt” to see what’s changed.
