In italian wiki we have developed a new macro to include in the page
"the supported releases".
An example is here ->
(It's under TableOfContets (modified ;), you could read "Versioni
supportate" (tran. "Supported releases")
It's a nice way to control deprecated pages.

If you want, I can give the code of macro.
