Removing the release pages might have been overdoing it a little. I
agree it would be useful to have the release pages available via the
website, especially since they capture just the diff from the previous
release, and without the and pages, you can't
quickly get the whole picture.

There is a quick solution, which would be to link the pages from
Subversion to the website. You lose the nice formatting and links
though. The other option (b) is to put the old pages back, but have
the download section point to the page.

Any opinions or other options? If not, I'll try to get around to (b)
in the near future.
