Unfortunately, due to branching, changeset numbers are not sufficient  
by themselves. Releases are done on branches. The changeset of the  
branch doesn't tell you what changeset on the main trunk is closest to  
that version. Typically it just indicates the latest main trunk  
changeset at the moment the release was tagged, which could be long  
after the release was done.
