I ACK the series, but some suggestions below. Let's set a precedent for
the format. Some interesting ideas here:

http://keepachangelog.com/en/0.3.0/
https://github.com/olivierlacan/keep-a-changelog/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md

If I'm being to formal about this just ignore me. :)

How about "Unreleased". Perhaps some of these features listed won't
actually make it, for one reason or another, in the actual release.

Let's separate this into 1.12.0 with a date, and then another
header for the older stuff. That way we have a precedent for the
release version/date header and the features list. eg:

1.12.0 - 2016-09-20

* feature list item to set some precedent
* and another
