OK, this could work, however there are two things I don't like:

1. the releases are out of order. Could we have them biggest to  
smallest or vice versa? I don't mind which, but a vaguely random  
order? What happens when we have:

Version 2.0
Version 1.2
Legacy Releases
Beta Release (Version 3.0)
Development Release (Version 4.0)

Argh! How about I write some Javascript which automatically re-orders  
them on every page load :-)

2. I'd prefer not to do two level menus. Firstly, they are a bit more  
annoying to code. Secondly, they are really really annoying to hit -  
if the mouse falls slightly outside the menu bounds the menu vanishes.

I'd prefer right now that we just have "Version 1.1 (legacy)" in the  
menu which takes up no more space, and then we can deal with this in  
the future when there are more items we'd like to insert. This web  
site isn't forever - over the next months of real use it will need  
modifications. Let's deal with those later.
