I feel like a better solution for that would be a running changelog of
breaking changes and new features (bugfixes being less crucial to
include here). Annotate it with dates and maybe commit hashes / links
to PRs. Add a big heading or something where releases were cut. It
could be a simple file included in the zig repo that is easy for anyone
to update via PR.

Importance of copious release notes? 2 months ago

From dbandstra to ~andrewrk/ziglang

Anecdotally, it seems like a large proportion of people are tracking
master. The ziglearn site recommends to use master. And when people
ask a question (e.g. on IRC) and it turns out they are using a tagged
release, the first thing is always to get them on master, even if it's
not relevant to their problem.

So why spend so much time on release notes?

I've seen how much work Andrew puts into them (the page up now
mentions that it takes over a week), the kind of work which must be at
least a little soul-destroying. And it ends up being a very, very long
page to read. Maybe useful mainly as a reference, but how useful is a
version-by-version changelog when most people are tracking master.
