That was a scheduled issue leading up to the release.
We added a note to the f.a.o/index.html but not to
the $FORREST_HOME/index.html quickstart. Would someone
please do it for next time.

That message box is brand new. One could also interpret
the "More" link to mean more about the actual release.
We can tweak all this type of stuff immediately after
the release for the online docs.

Yep, not sure why. Perhaps because we must use an
"external" URL for that entry in site.xml navigation.
Would be good to fix after the release, but not sure
if it is possible.

works now. For me with English as my default locale
it generates in build/site/en/
Regarding the content, i expect if you provided
German source (e.g. then it should work.
