DokuWiki Release Names

Since December 2009, DokuWiki releases do get a code name next to its date based version number. The idea is that code names are much easier to remember and thus make it simpler to communicate when talking about features or bugs.

Early release names were randomly chosen, since 2011 releases are named after characters in Terry Pratchett's discworld novels. Since “Detritus”, we use increasing letters of the alphabet to make it easier to know which release is newer.
