Hi Jean,

I just noticed that Quick Start is both a tab and an entry on the Home 
tab.  I do find this quite disconcerting.  I think that consistency in 
how the navigational features work is important for ease of use.  Having 
an entry jump to a new tab violates consistency.

Other oddities:
 From the Download tab, click License.  Now you're on the Home tab.
 From the Download tab, click 10.1.2.1.  The navbar collapses, rather 
than highlighting 10.1.2.1.
 From the Community tab, click FAQs.  Now you're on the Home tab again.

I think it would be helpful to have consistency in how heading levels on 
the navbar correspond to pages in the text area.  For example, each 
major heading level is its own page and each subhead is a jump on the 
text page.  Or, each heading, major or minor, is a new page and jumps 
within a page are not shown on the navbar (not needed since they appear 
in the TOC at the top of the page).

Finally, I think it would help the overall design to have off-site links 
such as the Quick Links to open a new window.

BTW, I really like the new colors.
