Like with any piece of Emacs, you check the included Info manual.  In
particular, you look in the respective "News" or "Changes" section in
the respective manual.

(info "(AUCTeX) Changes")


News in 12.1

   * AUCTeX now requires GNU Emacs 24 or higher.  Support for XEmacs has
     been dropped.

   * Besides the change in the supported version of Emacs, there has
     been no functional change in this release, which is equivalent to
     version 11.92.
Commit messages are _absolutely_ not the place for collecting
release-relevant information.  They are supposed to describe the
particular changes affected by a particular commit, not changes by some
unspecific series of commits preceding it.
