As you have noticed, by using ChangeLog you have to manually do something

For GraphicsMagick we do use the always "bumps" approach in order to make regular dated snapshots easy. Then at release time, a simple edit to a file allows setting a specific release version.

The main drawback is that there is a re-configure and build as soon as the ChangeLog file has been updated.
