The CHANGES file is not accurate with regard to which version contains which changes.

For example, the CHANGES file distributed with version 1.2.6 begins with these lines:

Changes since 1.2.6
- Updates for GCC 5

It is by definition impossible for any changes in the 1.2.6 distribution to have occurred *since*
(meaning: "after") 1.2.6.

In fact, "Updates for GCC 5" did not occur *since* 1.2.6; they occurred *in* 1.2.6; they were the only
advertised change in the 1.2.6 release.

I think that everywhere in the CHANGES file where you wrote "Changes since" you actually mean
"Changes in".

An exception is r2474 in which you added this line to the "Changes since 1.2.6" section:

- Updates for Clang

Because r2474 was committed after the release of 1.2.6, "Updates for Clang" did indeed occur *since*
the release of 1.2.6, so it should not appear in the same section as "Updates for GCC 5" which occurred
*in* 1.2.6.
