How to get Change Report from SVN?

Dear All,

We've decided to to upgrade to SVN from CVS. While evaluating the product, one feature i was looking for but couldn't find was a Change Report....

Question is simple... Can we get a change report for a specific period in SVN and export it ?

I have Visual SVN server and Tortoise SVN client...

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Afaik, TortoiseSVN does not support this. There should be Tools, like SmartSVN, which can do this - maybe there are also others. You could also install the command line client and get a simple textual list of changes for specified periods.
