Hi Steve,

thanks for the explanation! I think the big green download button is a 
good idea!

Maybe we can track the latest stable version number in Subversion? 
Create a file called stable.version that contains the stable Subversion 
revision. This revision is checked out for building the stable release.
This would allow all committers to change the stable release.

As a rule of thumb we should update the stable release around once a 
month. People who want to work with the latest release can download them 
in the list below. That sounds fair enough.
