Counting all packages, not only the engine itself, there is usually a big
turnaround, especially when one adopts aggressive release cycle for betas
etc. The rest of problem is timing, because one must update the page very
quickly, in worst case in 24 hours from first announcement about release,
preferably in hours / immediately. It's not easy for a volunteer to
commit to these requirements for long time. When update slips, the whole
Download page gets useless, as people quickly learn to go directly to
SourceForge page instead.
