I agree with the other proposed changes too, but I'm replying to this 
message for easier quoting.

Besides the new wording, I recommend adding a direct link to the bug 
list, or even picking a couple of them.

So something like:
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.1 is a micro update with many useful and critical
bugfixes including 2 security relevant fixes. Bugfixes include: better 
compatibility with Microsoft Office files, better support for Mac OS X 
gestures and scrolling, enhanced compatibility with Linux desktop 
environments. A full list of the 88 issues fixed in this release can be 
found at
(this would also fit well in the Release Notes, probably, as something 
between the link only and the full list).

OpenOffice 4.1.1 [it's our trademark]

I count 40. But it should be 41, so one is missing probably. I can't 
check which one now...

That page is not updated 
yet. To answer a question from you on this page: I would indeed 
recommend to point all checksums to the archive, and significant files 
(i.e., > 100 KBytes) to dist.
