Thanks for re-activating a dead post. @Texy posted the same info more than 2 years ago (see above)
I can find nothing wrong with adding new information to an old thread. On other platforms you even get awards for doing so (e.g., excavator badge on SO). Technically, Dirk added new information as his link is different from the link you are referencing.
Now back to the topic. By the way, I found my way here through googling for "raspbian old version".
I have to admit that I was confused by the naming of images on http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/
as I expected them to have names according to a version scheme (e.g. 12.10). Instead, they are given certain dates. And dates in folders names do not always match dates in image names.
Only after I found this list on wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raspberry ... on_history
I could make sense of the dates. The date encoded in the folder name is the "release date" and the date encoded in the image name is the "release name".
Hope that helps others to find their image version, too.
