On the main site, the download link leads to the file with the latest stable version. It can easily be used in scripts, CLI tools, etc.

On Rosetta sites, the download link includes the version number, so people cannot easily link to the latest version without specifying the exact number. See an example request on the forums.

Links like are available, but are not mentioned anywhere and cannot be found unless you already happen to know the URL.

For consistency and better discoverability, download links on Rosetta sites should link to the file for the locale.

We should probably switch all of these over to using the hostname for consistency too.

You'll find them at the following URLs: (en_US)

I was going to suggest switching the main download links to include a version number for consistency, but upon seeing that we do indeed serve content-disposition: attachment; filename= headers for the latest alias, I figured switching it's pointless (and was only going to lead to outdated cached pages)

  • Status changed from new to closed

In 8394: On localised sites, link to a latest-$ filename instead of including the version in the link.

This is to help surface the direct url which developers can rely upon.

Fixes #4218.
