Description

The release notes page need a link to explicity download the version they are
touting.

Scenario:

- Watching the camino blog rss feed in my reader (NNW)
- See a post[1] that Camino 0.8.4 is out and click on the rel note link to find
out more
- That page is clean, but navigation wise its almost a dead end, so i've gotta
go to the home page or back to NNW and the figure out how to actually download it.

Somewhere on the page should be a simple download link or a "to get version XXX
of Camino" sentance somewhere along the release info.

I suppose this brings up another issue, to which I'll post a bug and dependency
on soon. Where should the link go?

If we put the link in the release notes to the latest download, we'll be
changing every release note page on each release. However, if we put the old
releases on those pages, there will be links to old release which people will be
downloading.

So, to remedy this, I say we link to /download/releases/. This would require
creating a page however, which is a new bug, soon to be filed.

as to where on page it should go

Presuming each release will have a permanently availalable release notes page
(judging by the URL ..../084.html that's the case) you could easily just link
the version that doc was released for at the top. Either in the header like
"Download 0.8.4" or add a line above the first paragraph with a little more copy
such as "To download a copy of Camino 0.8.4 go here and do this and pick your
language and balance an egg on your nose"

And just rewrite that link or that first sentance for each new release doc you
post removing the old links / leaving the old links on the old pages
