How to tell the difference between two versions of a Debian package

Debian Administration has a small gem about how to identify the changes between two Debian packages very easily.
Read it all here!

If you have the source code to two Debian package revisions and wish to identify the changes between them there is a very handy tool called interdiff which will allow you to do that very easily.

Whilst it is not often useful for package users it can be very useful to Debian developers, or people curious to see what has changed in a package in more detail than might be present in the ChangeLog.
