[development] changes to project nodes and admin UI and now installed on drupal.org

i've recently finished another round of project node improvements,
and i just installed them all on drupal.org. of particular interest,
the "default version" link on the project nodes is now gone, replaced
with an auto-generated table of the latest releases for each version
of core your module supports. development snapshots are there in
a separate table.
here's the important thing for you to know:
if your project has more than 1 branch for a given version of core
(e.g. 4.7.x-2.* and 4.7.x-1.* releases) you can now specify if the
latest 1.* or 2.* should be the default release for your project.
"default" means it'd be listed in that table on your project node,
and it'd be used as the "Download" link on the project browsing pages
 when filtering by a specific version of core (e.g. 4.7.x). you
can select this via the new admin UI which is the "releases" subtab
on the edit tab of your project node. i hope the table is fairly
self-explanatory (though suggestions for improving the usability of
that table are certainly welcome).
also note that all issue-related project node settings now live in
the "issues" subtab, instead of being buried in collapsed fieldsets
on the old monolithic edit tab.

 see http://drupal.org/node/89538
 for example http://drupal.org/project/Modules/name
 see http://drupal.org/node/96971
p.s. if filter by <all> versions on the project browsing pages,
things are still kind of lame. i'm working on fixing this:
any help there would be appreciated. thanks!
