Agreed. I think the titles are currently very confusing. The page
you've just added should be called something like "Changelog", to
stress its more bare'n'technical natural compared to our official
"What's New" pages.

Also it would be extra nice if the "What's new in Python X.Y" section
headers could be renamed to "Python X.Y changelog", or similar.
