I liked it! +1 :o)

I think being able to see the latest version and its release date 
will be very useful for users and for developers of commons. 

Another thing I would like, but I'm not sure if that's doable or a good 
idea, is to have a list of known projects using the libraries. Like 
somewhere saying that Jenkins is using Jelly, Hadoop is using Math, 
CLI, Compress, HttpClient, etc, and so it goes. 

WDYT? 

Thanks!
