Printing changelog upon package updates

proposal

#1

One of the nicest things about developing Julia packages is the fact that we can deploy new releases with attobot with a single click on GitHub. What I would like to propose is some sort of mechanism that prints the changelog of a new release on the Julia prompt whenever the user asks for an update with Pkg.update().

Currently, we can see the tags in the update log like Foo v1.2.3 -> v1.2.4, but even better would be if for each of these new tags we could see a list of changes right away from the release description. Maybe a verbose option to Pkg.update(verbose=true)? What are your thoughts on this?


Please, consider putting up a CHANGELOG file after moving to 0.7

Perfect, didn’t know there was issue open already. Like the option Pkg.update(news=true).
