it seems that there is a fundamental misunderstanding here.

there was no information stating that "0.1-alpha55 *is* the lastest
stable release".
the downloads section doesn't work like this.
instead it is accumulative and inclusive.
from a list of all stable releases, it will highlight the latest one.

so if you want to fix the "not true and quite misleading information"
you should start by providing correct and unambiguous information,
rather than trying to root out all the information that is not correct
(from your point of view).
be constructive, rather than destructive.

since yesterday, the /downloads/cyclone/ page has been owned by three
- krzysztof
- fred jan
- alex

please: it is *your* responsibility to not fuck up the content of others.
i understand that the website is showing its age, also from a UX point
of view. but that is what we currently have.
i think you should either accept the rigidness of /downloads/ and try to
"go with the flow" of the page, or just plainly ignore it. (something i
find quite similar to Pd, where you are basically lost as soon as you
try to force your well known control-flow mechanics onto that odd
data-flow paradigm).

anyhow, i think i've learned *my* lesson.
