how to review changes in a new version of a plugin??? what's the best approach???


Background - I'm a few month behind the latest code for a plugin. I
use SVN for my RoR project.

Question - What's the best/easiest way to review the changes in a more
update version of the plugin against my version?

Would it be to checkout out the latest version of the plugin to a temp
area, then copying this over my plugin area, and then use "svn
status"? Or is there a nicer/better way to do the review?
