I think 2016 makes clear it's a date. We are releasing because it's 2016
and we've done some useful things that people should want :-) I think
GROMACS 2016 clearly captures that.
I'm fairly sure nobody thinks Windows 10 was released in 2010. I don't know
whether Amber14 is the 14th release or the one from 2014 - historically it
was just a version number.
