It would be something of a kludge, but you could retain the previous
project and from the latest GEDCOM create a new project, or a new
dataset within the project, then compare them.

Not as neat as "track changes" in most word processors, but doable.

Actually, that's another way: Print the same report(s) from the prior
and the new datasets, and compare them in a word processor.
