apt-get changelog

Manually for each package:
aptitude changelog package-name

Automatically for each upgrade (and of course also manually):
sudo apt-get install apt-listchanges
sudo dpkg-reconfigure apt-listchanges

Wow, great, thanks for the tip! I was looking all over for this. It does exactly what I needed. I'm surprised that changelog display isn't a more standard feature in Debian/Ubuntu distributions, as it's great for a system administrator to know the reasons for an upgrade, when justifying it to management.
