Several times when I have run the port outdated command and seen that there was an update available to one of my installed ports, I have wondered what it is that has changed between the two versions. I don't know of an easy way to get this information, other than browsing the revisions in the source on trac.
It may be possible to create a command line tool that displays this information. I guess it would have to take a portname and two versions as inputs, then look through the revision history to find when the versions changed, and then compile a list of all the change descriptions.
Of course if there were changelogs it could just output that.
