Ah, deadlines ;-) I'm happy that one missed deadline != one dead developer!

Looks nice!

How does get.fpo look now? How does it follow new spins mockup and sitemap - 
other downloads etc? I can find only old mockup and I can't imagine connection.

Of course, np. Is it possible to add another custom tabs (next to support, 
could be distinguished by slight different color etc.)?

Blog aggregator with spin tags would be nice.

I'm not sure it's worth to show EOLed releases as there's now support for 
them. If someone really wants to download not supported releases for some 
reason, he probably would know where to look.
