See the "faq" on he website, it has a graph about versioning. It is the
current version in the current fixes branch.

Note that this overview (and its major index on
http://www.stack.nl/~marcov/mergelogs26 ) isn't 100% correct.

In rare cases, changes get merged, (partially) unmerged and/or manually
altered (*) due to discussion, which isn't completely visible in the
eligible merge history.

In this (tbookmark) case that has happened, and thus comparing source of the
various branches is the only 100% safe way.

(*) separate, non merge commits to the fixes branch
