[Qgis-developer] Release count down on website.

I was always annoyed about that.

I also don't like people announcing the QGIS release on Twitter when in 
fact it isn't ready for the average user. Also - visual changelog not 
finished, etc.

It would be good to only announce the QGIS release when it is really 
available. Otherwise we are false raising expectations.
