[Halld-offline] Bug fix release of halld_recon: restore the REST version number

New version sets have been created and built at JLab with a new patch to 
the REST format in place in halld_recon. They are:

  * version_4.37.2.xml
  * recon-2017_01-ver03_26.xml
  * recon-2018_01-ver02_18.xml
  * recon-2018_08-ver02_17.xml

Version set 4.37.2 is now the default.

As part of the improvements to the tagger energy determination, the 
tagger (micro and hodo) counter ID was added to the REST format. In that 
process the sub-minor version number in the REST header got incremented 
by one (1.1.0 -> 1.1.1). This caused code using the old REST reader to 
reject REST files written with the new info, even though, because of the 
nature of the change, the new files are perfectly compatible with code 
using the old reader. Richard Jones put in a patch, restoring the old 
version number to the new REST specification.

The builds of the previous iterations of these version sets (those with 
the bug) will be deleted from the group disk later today. They were 
announced here 
and here 

Yunjie Yang first ran into this problem earlier in the week. (Yunjie: I 
am going to delete that special version set I made for you, you can use 
the new ones.) Thanks to him for reporting the issue.
