Some notes:
- Why is the LTS version still mentioned?  I think that's the main source of
  confusion.  We should drop that altogether or simply just mention it
  separately as special edition for enterprises or something - stale and
  stable ;).  The current release should be the recommended version for normal
  use and should not be spoiled by the LTS version.
- We don't support the current release?
- The releases (and dates) should be described in one section and not for each
- The standalone windows installer is also based on the OSGeo4W packages and
  includes GRASS.  ECW & MrSID support is not included - just like in the
  OSGeo4W packages.
- I don't think we need to mention MSVC.  There currently is no other build
- The ubuntu packages from my ppa will be moved to ubuntugis on release.
- I'll asked Frank Warmerdam to update the "real" osgeo4w repository on
