Its a bit off subject, and I hate to ask for more since you've given us so much already, but the changelogs on github are a bit out of date.  How would you feel about possibly putting changelogs on the wiki.  this way they could benefit from crowdsourcing and also serve as sort of a roadmap for future releases?

just my 2¢.
