What kind of confusion?

The installer is different because people download it and run it.
Although there is a nightly installer build for Windows available.

Related: Are you in favor of going back to loading explorer.xml?  Right
now it is compiled into explorer.swf so in order to point to the 3rd party
content we need to re-compile explorer.mxml and under your preferences, go
through another release.  I think it would have been much more rewarding
to the person offering the 3rd party links if we could have hooked him up
yesterday.

Justin switched to embedding XML to avoid a potential trust file issue
when running locally, but I think as soon as you hit the next swf you'll
get the same issue.  We should just document in the release notes that you
have to set up a trust file, and maybe add a global exception handler that
says "Hey, you need to set up a trust file".

IMO, no vote is needed prior.  It is just a commit and folks can veto.
