A more selective way is to merge single changes at a time. I have
attached the file I'm using for that for BGL (for Linux); it has
directions for use, but you will need to customize it for your library.
You will need to filter out old updates manually, but you get more control
over what to merge and get a file of detailed changes (log messages from
changes in the trunk) to help in writing the change log.
