The CHANGES files are exceedingly useful, right up through June 1998,
when they were removed because they contained information redundant with
the new_features_1.3.html file, which is less useful, primarily because
it is not quite the same beast as the CHANGES file. The CHANGES file
appears to have been scrapped and rewritten with each release, to show
what the changes were from the last release. The new_features HTML file,
OTOH, is sort of a running log of everything that has changed since the
last *major* release. And while the diffs are useful, this file appears
to be maintained less consistently, particularly during the 1.3.1 -
1.3.10 stretch. But I'm finding some useful things in there anyways.
