Description

I came up with an idea to eliminate the false-positives when showing the red "This relay is running an outdated Tor version" banner.

Lets only display that red banner if recommended_version is false and 'version' and the version in 'platform' match, otherwise do not display it.

example:

That's clever. The only case I can think of where there would be a false negative is when someone has updated from an outdated relay to another outdated version. I like this.

Yes, I'm accepting the false-negatives for having nearly 0 false-positives.

Fixed in b186e90. Also the Not Recommended flag will not be added unless the version and platform are consistent.
