Subject Re: [DOWNLOAD][PROPOSAL] How to download another version than offered in the green box?
Date Tue, 03 Jun 2014 20:31:59 GMT
I'm doing last fixes and updates. My feeling says the new webpage is 
nearly finished and ready to go Live.

Please have a look and test.

I would like to use this as new default download webpage before the weekend.

Thanks

Marcus
