I agree one word is better than two. Maybe just current.

You are correct about the redundancy. I was trying to make the change as minor as possible. A somewhat better listing would be

GRASS GIS 7.8.5 (current stable)

GRASS GIS 7.6.1 (legacy) [change from “old”]

GRASS GIS 7.9 (preview) [“development” is OK, but “preview” sounds more inviting for use]

+1 for legacy and especially preview, I like that a lot!

I'm unsure about "current stable". It seems like one of the works might be enough. I thought stable should be enough, but PostgreSQL actually uses Current in documentation just be itself. Isn't there a noun "release" implied in each of those? Aren't all releases stable unless noted otherwise? Isn't then "stable" redundant? Anyway, I like the proposal even as is.
