            The release notes for 3.12 are misleading, because they include features introduced in 3.10 (for which there was no release announcement on Freecode). Thanks for making the announcements again (I think Freecode is an excellent way to keep abreast of free software announcements); maybe if there's a similar situation in future you could mark changes from previous releases?
