Subject Release Overview
Date Wed, 09 Feb 2005 18:30:57 GMT
Looking at the site last night I realised that we still don't have any
release notes or explanation of what functionality is in the
release. All that is there for the release is a link that takes
you to a somewhat confusing list of downloads.

I was thinking that the link could take you to a page that had
the following information on it, basically an overview of the
functionality, an explanation of the downloads (with links) and a table
of  test reports.

If Jean or someone else could "forrest' this, and add it to the site,
that would be great.

Please feel free to add addition features I missed or correct it it any way.

Then I think a similar simpler page should exist for each snapshot jar,
that basically lists the new/changed
