That's cool... but not the only use of our trac.

Hmmm. The list you added below does not correlate much with releases.
I agree with removing things that are not formal releases, but 8.2
(756?) and 8.2.1 (802) _must_ be there. Otherwise it is impossible to
do maintenance of stable releases.

Also -- releases are not milestones. You'll want to add significant
XO-1.5-osXX builds there (significant as in alphas, betas, RCs...).

We never had a "1.0 Software". We've had things like Update.1, .2
(756?) and 8.2.1 (802).

Bottom line: what we need in the 'version' field is stuff that shows
up in the Control Panel -> About my XO dialog.

Will do.
