Addons landing page points to old version.

https://ankiweb.net/shared/addons/ currently links to the old version's addons, expected it to point to 2.1. There's not even a link on that page for the 2.1 add ons, so it took a bit of guessing to figure out the naming convention the first few times DDG sent me there.

Simplest possible solution would be to drop a "Find Anki 2.1 add ons here..." link at the top of the Anki 2.0 add ons page.

Long term, would recommend following the Python docs model: The simplest URL always redirects (aliases?) to the most current version, while explicitly putting the current version number into the URL, so it's easy for users to see how to roll back that page to previous versions. `https://docs.python.org/` becomes `https://docs.python.org/3/`
You can easily swap out the `3` for a `2` or `3.7` or whatever.

Just a thought.
