Thank you so much!
I built a final Mac installer and To-Go, uploaded to squeakland but still in the home directory, not yet in the installers directory (that is, not yet on the download page). We still need a new Windows installer.
For testing I made an updated download page with a bit more text:
... which someone would need to rename to index.jsp to replace the current download page. It would need a blurp on 5.0, link to the new release notes etc. (comparing to the 4.1 release notes we're missing contributors acknowledgements)
I'm gone now, but might have email access to read Karl's announcement ;)
