While dnf doesn't offer changelog display inline with the update process (via a --changelog argument, as yum-plugin-changelog provided), a fedoraforum user pointed out that dnf updateinfo info will display the text of update advisory notices, which covers most of the former yum --changelog upgrade output.

You don't get the detailed changelogs for packages that don't use update advisories, but it's at least a workable substitute. You can also use dnf updateinfo list to get a short listing of advisories, and a simple dnf updateinfo will produce a brief summary with counts of the outstanding update advisories.

Note that because dnf updateinfo doesn't refresh metadata by default, the most equivalent command to yum --changelog upgrade is probably something like dnf --refresh updateinfo info; dnf upgrade.
