You make a good point. There's no obvious information on the front page
of the website which explains:

  * what release numbers mean
  * what releases are best for whom
  * what the releases contain (CHANGES file, release notes, etc.)

The apache website is very good about this; this is all on their front
page.

Yeah, but where do you draw the line? Should we make a "small text"
link that explains every single bugfix and feature in 1.1? Security
bugs are about the only thing important enough to warrant this sort of
attention.
