Anniversary Edition/Installer/Change log
Prior to the release of the AE Installer 2, new versions of the Installer were distributed with new releases of the AE itself. Since the Installer can now update itself, its updates are no longer tied to AE releases. Therefore, all AEI updates from v2.00 onward are documented below, whereas the Installer's previous update history is a part of the AE change log.
Initial release as part of AE7.
