    An alpha version can be used to name a release while a previous one is still
    being developed.
    
    E.g. 2.9.0~alpha1 can be out while 2.8.0~rc1 is being worked on.
    
    When a version is marked as alpha, it is allowed to have unreleased versions
    before it in the NEWS file, in order to simplify merges of the NEWS file itself
    between the two development branches.
    
    Partially fixes Issue 448.
