Maybe blessing can stay if we "rename" a meaning to it: a blessed 
version is a current stable one while all other are development or 
archive ones.

When we just talk about that, what is a meaning of released versions? 
Are releases the stable ones, to be separated from development versions?

Also, it would be nice to have all versions, both released and other 
under the Versions tab. Colored rows could then separate released 
versions from other.

Now it seems that many people got confused of the meaning of those tabs, 
Maybe one sentence of description on top of each tab's page won't be bad 

Just few quick proposals ...
