As Mike indicated, it isn’t easy to get the latest changes for an arbitrary cookbook update. For now the best bet is to go to the source tab on the cookbook and view the CHANGELOG.md, at least for Opscode’s cookbooks. Given that ~15% of the total cookbooks on the site are maintained by Opscode, it’s hard to speak to the hundreds of other cookbooks.
That said, I’ll send an email later today with all the cookbook changes from releases this week, which is the latest release CHANGELOG.md entry for each one.
: if they don’t have it currently, they will when they get a new release
