Updating the version number

I am sure everyone has seen the extensive discussions on version 
numbers.  Mark has recently posted a JEP capturing a concrete proposal:


The high-order bit here is that we're proposing going back to numbering 
things 10, 11, 12, including the platform specification.

JSR-383 (https://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=383) contains 11 occurrences 
of the string "18.3":

  - Title
  - Description
  - 2.1 Proposed Specification (2x)
  - 2.3
  - 2.14 links
  - 2.15 RI and TCK (2x)
  - 2.19 link
  - 2.20 link
  - 3 Contributions

Assuming no one here objects, I will ask the PMO to change all of the non-link usages of "18.3" in the JSR to "10 (18.3)", as in "Java SE 10 (18.3)" or "The Java SE 10 (18.3) Platform Specification".

I will propose a similar change for JSR-384 (Java SE 18.9) once that JSR is approved and the EG formed.
