Bug Description

[Impact]
Documentation listing the wrong version and codename for a release may be misleading users into believing they are looking at the wrong documentation files. It also refects poorly on having a strong image for up-to-date, professional software.

[Test Case]
1- Look at doc/install/manual/en/index.html on ubuntu-server CDs.
2- Notice the version number and codename in documentation.

[Regression Potential]
Minimal. This is limited to documentation strings.

----

The installation-guide documentation contains an invalid name for the current release where it's available.
