The download page looks stale to me. Right now, the best way to navigate 
to the beta is through the 10.2 wiki page: 
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/TenTwoRelease. That page gives users a 
lot of context, including the current bug status and a pointer to a 
description of the beta contents. I'd like to continue routing everyone 
through that page because it's easier to keep it current. However, I 
agree that it's confusing that the download page doesn't point users to 
one of our important downloads.

Also, the latest 10.1 snapshot on that page is older than the current 
10.1 release. That looks odd. I think this page needs some cleanup and 
probably some rethinking.
