Migrate old binary releases from Dethware to the releases page. Having them all available through GitHub would be nice, and minimize the difficulty of finding any particular release. With the tags already in place, it should be more tedious than difficult!

At the same time, adding the relevant NEWS or changelog to these old releases would give a better sense of history. The formatting of this part of the releases page could be made more consistent, too.

Obviously this isn't at all urgent, but once DF updates, pulls, issues, and so on are under control it's something to consider.

If someone's willing to grant me the permissions required, I'd be happy to do this myself. Otherwise, it'll only be an hour or so to download them all from http://dethware.org/dfhack/download/ and upload them to Github as release artifacts.

There are also a bunch of older releases on DFFD too, and I don't think they all have Github release notes yet. I'll take a look.

There's a brief note about releases here; after dealing with the binaries it might make sense to close this issue from a commit removing that note.

0.34.10-r1 is the oldest I can find release notes for (the NEWS file was introduced in 0.34.11-r2), although I'm working on binaries for some older ones now.

I think we have gathered all documentation that we can find for this - closing, but willing to add more releases if we can identify commits and release notes (and optionally binaries) for them.
