Good point!

On the SF Files page, the average (new) user doesn't see the wood for
the trees. We need a simple download page, and links to it from the
project homepage and (possibly) the Summary page. Such a download page
doesn't have to contain each and every source, debug or tool package.
Just the mainstream releases for the different OS'es, and a pointer to
the Files page for whoever wants to see more.

Pavel, are you following this thread?

If this is generally considered a good idea but nobody has the time,
I volunteer to make such a page.
