The dates of writing and/or first publishing are important for
copyright purposes.  Since there were releases to customers prior to
publication in this list, I find it very important to have all the
relevant dates in the ChangeLog, even if it clutters things up a bit.

Which is why there is the summary in the beginning, that I failed to
add in the first posting last year.  One could argue that it might be
a good idea to summarize everything into a single ChangeLog entry;
I've actually done that before, but it's an insane amount of
error-prone work for very little benefit, and it loses the copyright
information, which has legal implications I'd rather avoid.
