Am I understanding correctly that you're proposing to leave the  
download page as it is? If so, then I do feel strongly that that's  
the wrong thing to do. Many more people are interested in release  
versions than beta versions. There are also plenty of links to that  
page that mention that that's where you can get BSF 2.4. Having to  
follow the "browse download area" or "archive" links is counter- 
intuitive; it looks as if there is no released version right now.

Why not put up the beta version someplace else (I seem to remember  
seeing a link to Ant's personal pages at apache.org that contained  
it), and change the announcement to point to that page?

(As an aside, I would argue that even after the 3.0 release, 2.4  
should remain available, and visibly linked to.)
