It doesn't seem necessary to start using "STS" for the versions that
aren't "LTS" IMO. Presumably the site admins have some awareness of
Tiki's versioning and release cycles and don't need to get everything
spelled out in this notice. But if more info is needed, there could be a
"For more information" link to the explaining page.

I also don't think it is necessary. I think the current and proposed wordings are already acceptable.

The "Your Tiki is up to date." is correct for a sentence. But this is
a heading.... or if its not, they should be brought down onto the same
line. Not capping "to" while capping "up" seems odd. "Your Tiki Is Up
To Date" is I guess another option.

15.4 LTS is the most recent <a href="

version</a>. Anupgrade to <a href=""

How about:

I think describing the distinction between both versions will indeed be
the easiest way to clarify. Unfortunately, we do not have a term to
contrast LTS with. I think we could call 16 a "short term support"
version quite accurately, though less marketingly. I don't expect us to
do that, but I would actually support calling most versions "STS" as
long as they have no more than ½ a year of support.
