cvs log -r rel-tag-n -r rel-tag-n+1

This output can be massaged by some tools. Karl Fogel's
script captures the output of cvs log, and rearranges it to reconstruct
a change log.

Of course, a change log is not the same thing as software release
notes. Release notes should be an intelligent summary which explains
the changes in a way that is relevant to the user.

Meta-CVS: solid version control tool with directory structure versioning.
