New Downloads page

The second most controversial page on www.eclipse.org just got a major overhaul today -- the main Downloads page.



Its last redesign was done sometime in early 2005, when I introduced the smart mirrors system. It was given a new look when the purple Phoenix skin was introduced later that year, and it hasn't been redesigned since.

As time went on, more and more people wanted more content on that page. Today's design, using the tabbed view, allows lots of content to be front-and-center without too much clutter.

Thanks to everyone who tested the page, and who provided valuable feedback. Props to Nathan for actually doing all the work.

Scott, it should be nearly instantaneous... Can you please file a bug, and don't forget to include your OS/version and browser/version, as well as your screen resolution.

I take back all my sniveling about not being able to finding the modeling package. Kudos to Nathan.

Ed, your so-called 'sniveling' made these improvements happen. Keep up the good work!
