getting changes between two release tags

I've read the discussions recently on this matter, and the suggesitions
don't seem to apply to this case:

Is there any way to get log information with the specific criteria:

show logs:
where revision number > tag for old revision number and <= new revision

If the revision numbers are the same, I don't want to see the tag.

Specifically this is to answer the question "what changes have been made to
go from release A to release B?"

If I use -rA::B, I don't get the last revision made to each file, ie. from to, I lose the revision. If I use -rA:B, I get a
revision listed for to which is wrong because the software
didn't change between releases. If I use -rA::B -rB I get a similar problem.

I'd rather not parse it through a script (ie. I'd rather get CVS to do it
directly), although I do have perl installed.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
