Just a suggestion.

I have downloaded my ISO once but my download count is 6.

Why is this?

1. The version number looks the same on the webpage so i wasted some clicks thinking i had followed the wrong link
2. There is no MD5 sum so i wasted some clicks looking for that.

Perhaps this could be refined as it is a bit confusing as it stands.

Cheers

Two simple things to remember:

1. The version history will always reflect the latest release.
2. The download page will always link to the last release.

We do not keep legacy versions of the software on the production servers, so once the ISO image is updated, the latest release is the only one available online. That's all there is to it ;-)

Understood and i admit that i knew this before i both entered my URL and posted this...

however people being people doubt creeps in.

It really would be better though if you could name the ISOs to include minor versions though.

Anyhow just a suggestion no biggy :)

Fat,

I know what you mean, would stop any confusion when a update comes out. I have seen posts where a user will download the ISO multiple times becauae they are unsure they got the latest version and mention in the forum that the ISO is not the current version. probably due to burning a older image?
or the file summary included could have version details only requiring a right click on the file to see the details.
