Forge Server changelog archives

Hi all,

Due to a limit of 32000 characters per post in the forums, I have to split the summary of the server changelogs into a separate thread. I write one changelog per comment/reply to the original Server update changelog thread then keep them in reverse order as expandable lines in the top post for ease of access.

I’ve had to trim down that list, and I’ll be keeping the archives here of all changelogs as it grows over time.
