r18476 - htdocs/trunk/news - Fix unstable version warning

I didn't 'svn update' until after I'd copied 2.3.7 to 2.3.8 as a template, so I didn't know about the new stuff.  It wasn't until I had first committed the 2.3.8 news item and then went to see how it looked on gnucash.org that I noticed some of the new stuff.  I copied the warning block, but nothing else.

A new template would be great.  Even better would be working out a good process for updating the changed item section.  For this, I looked at the revision log from http://svn.gnucash.org/trac/log/gnucash/trunk, but it cuts off the comments.

I see you have pushed a new news item. You already found there is now a 
warning block in it. I had made some additional changes to the news pages, 
like adding links to the proper download locations and some general tidying to 
the titles.
I see now that I didn't communicate these changes properly. Sorry about that.

The result is that these changes are not picked up in your new news item.

I propose to take the news item for 2.3.7 as a template for future 
(development) news pages.

It would be nice if the 2.3.8 item had the other layout and content updates I 
did to the previous items. I can do that if you like, or you can do it 

I think apart for the version numbers, the only varying part of the news item 
is the "Changes between 2.3.x and 2.3.y include" section. Specifically for the 
version number, it's easiest to do a search and replace. There are some in the 
links at the bottom of the news item as well.
