I don't think that there won't be any differences when I look at your 
instructions in the README.

I'm preparing the hotfix webpage. For this I've some questions:

1. Do we want to provide zip files for every platform or just single 
files for the library and other files?

2. Can we add ASC, MD5, SHA256 files for every library (or zip) file?

3. Is this the final URL or just for our testing before moving to the 
official URL?
