[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[1].  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[2].   
"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 
[3] 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[4].  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.

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!
