Clarify LTS versus regular releases.

Suggested by: Thomas Singer <thomas.singer{_AT_}syntevo.com>

* download.html

Add a notice of latest LTS release after notice of latest regular release.

(#recommended-release): Change the title to "Latest regular release".

State the support period.

(#supported-releases): Change the title to "LTS releases".

State the support period.

Say "1.10 LTS" instead of just "1.10", and for 1.9, everywhere.

* index.html, news.html: remove incorrect anchors in links to download page in recent news items. Better with no anchor at all.
* site-nav.html (site-nav-menu): Remove currently unnecessary '?update=...' parameter from download link.
Supported releases: Remove 'support period' column.

The info in it was simply wrong. Rather than correcting it, remove it as

correct and clearer details are already stated on the linked 'release planning' page.

Add sub-headings and format the requirements as a list, for clarity.

Fix 'release.py sign-candidates' for future versions >= 2.0.

* tools/dist/release.py

(sign_candidates): Fix the version number comparison.

Fix release.py check-sigs/write-downloads: 1.9.1 matched also 1.9.10, etc.

* tools/dist/release.py

(get_fileinfo): Tighten the version-match glob expression.

(check_sigs): Use get_fileinfo() instead of its own glob expression.
