Simplify the download page

                 Key: FELIX-690
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-690
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation
            Reporter: Richard S. Hall

The download page is quite ugly and difficult to comprehend; no offense to those who created
it. :-)

I think it would be better if we could simplify it so that each downloadable release fit on
a single line, something like:

    name [bundle] (asc,md5) [src tar.gz] (asc,md5) [src zip] (asc,md5)

So, in other words, we would have four columns:

    1. Name
    2. Link to bundle JAR and its digests.
    3. Link to src tar.gz and its digests.
    4. Link to src zip and its digests.

I don't think there is any reason to keep repeating the complete long file name, we just need
a short anchor name for people to click on.

Further, I think it would be better if the list could be alphabetized. Perhaps the only exception
would be to include the bundled framework convenience release separate at the top.
