I would like to be able to see what changes went in since the last release. This obviously should only be available for source controlled projects but would be very useful to see what's in a new package compared to the previous one.

Is it always the changes between packages that you would be interested in? How would you expect this to work?
It could potentially stamp the package with the source control revision number or GUID. Then when it comes to reporting on these, we scan the source control system to work it out. This of course means Deployment Manager would need to have access to your source control system.
Alternatively we could store the changes in the package in some fashion. This could avoid Deployment Manager needing to talk to the source control system. When reporting on these, we would need to scan the packages to collect changes. It also means the packages would need to be kept around.
Another approach could be to include all changes in every package. This would make package creation slower, but would mean each package could be used independently.
