Allow setting up version hierarchy
There's useful feature in JIRA which we would like to see in Redmine.
JIRA allows you to create parent-child relationships between versions. For example, you may wish to group your sprints as milestone versions (e.g. "Version 1 m1", "Version 1 m2", etc) under the version for the major release (e.g. "Version 1").
In JIRA, you can set up the major version as the "parent" version for the milestone versions. This allows you to view and track all of the issues assigned to the milestone releases under the umbrella of the major release.
All issues under the child version are considered to be a subset of the parent version. These version hierarchies are useful for managing Releases/Sprints/Teams. For example, if you set 'Version 2' to be the master of 'Version 2 milestone 1', then you will be able to view all the issues assigned to 'Version 2 milestone 1' when you view 'Version 2' on the Planning Board.

We need the ability to have several releases (sprints) within a release. Each sprint needs a name and date, i.e. a child version attached to a version!
1.0.0 Minimum viable product
- sprint 1 alpha (5/2/2016)
- sprint 2 beta (19/2/2016)
- sprint 3 rc (4/3/2016)
1.1.0 - New features
- sprint 1 beta (18/3/2016)
- sprint 2 rc (1/4/2016)
We then need the ability to group by child version to see all issues, by sprint, planned for a release as well as all issues in the whole release (e.g. for release notes).
