While I think that the page itself it good, I think that including a 
date in the page title is probably not a good Idea. Perhaps either a 
series of pages "Activity in <month> <Year>", or just one monolithic 
page "Activity Since Launch" would be a better way to go. For example, 
I've just announced NeoTool v1.1, but I did this on the 17th, which to 
me seems to make it inappropriate to add to a page titled "15th Sep 08"...
