Or maybe not keep them at all. Instead keeping one list with the release
dates of all previous versions, maybe with a link somewhere?

Might be a good idea, but *only* as a strictly additional information,
something like: For all those who want to know in detail what's in that
release ...
Such a display won't make much sense for the common user who doesn't
even know what a Git commit is.
