Where did you receive/find the "downloads.simplemachines.org" link?
Our site links to "download.simplemachines.org" everywhere. Do you mean someone gave you the wrong link? Or is there a link to "downloads.simplemachines.org" somewhere on our site? If so, where? :)

Hi jraju,

Our apologies as it looks like the release email did contain the wrong address.  The link should be https://download.simplemachines.org.

Hi, You as well send to individual users. I have found out  that  while i recommend this update to the smf machine users forum and noted that it goes elsewhere.

It is my humble suggestion that your format include a solved button ( to add (solved) in questions topic  , so that this will get easy access. Normally i add a solved to a topic or query or search suggestion to search google. So solved get listed and it helps a great deal that the searched thread has a solution or answer to the problem.
So many websites use smf.

Ah I see, yes that appears to be a typo upon converting the bbcode in the newsrelease to a hyperlink.
Apologies for the inconvenience.

Topic solved is not enabled in this board.

Thanks for reporting it, we'll make sure the next email contains the proper link. :)
