Thanks. I do like this idea. It's very straightforward.  I think this might
be better integrated if this new area could be placed directly  under the
"found" version in the green box. Maybe with some slightly smaller styling.

And, looking at what else we have going on here, and the information in the
lower lighter green box, I would suggest we move "Release Notes" as the top
item under "Documentation"

and move "Source Code and SDK", "Portable and USB ports" and Legacy
versions to "Additional Resources". (well some of these items are already
there really but maybe need to be reworded.)

This way the top darker green box would display the version found for the
user along with the new drop down and the lighter box underneath would only
contain signature and hashes info.

What do others think?

Or do you have complete different thoughts?
