I might be a bit nitpicking, but "Bugs fixed since 0.9.59" implies for
me that these bugs have been fixed after 0.9.59.
And when I'm reading the 0.9.60 announcement I'm mostly interested in
whether upgrading from 0.9.59 to 0.9.60 is worth it, not whether your
Bugzilla triage has found that a bug has been fixed a year ago.

Without any patches you could add fields "Known to work:" and
"Known to fail:" as in the gcc Bugzilla (see e.g. ), when resolving a
bug updating them, and then query for which bugs 0.9.59 was known to
fail and 0.9.60 is known to work.

 triaging bugs is an important task, but the information about
closing bugs fixed long ago doesn't belong here
