Much better :)

I also agree with Alex about the font perhaps being a smidge large, when
viewing on desktops at least.

I think that would be clearer, to me at least (if not just Messenger). We
don't call it AMQP Messenger anywhere else, and doing so seems to makes it
unclear that its part of Proton.

The 'java release' is actually not source but another binary, just a really
really horrible super set of the other binary release packages (amongest
other thigns that dont have release packags). Someting that I really need
to follow through on my intent to delete.

The only copy of the Java source is in the 'full release' source archive.
