Now behaviour is mangled: say "2.8.1" but follows to Subir's page
which links to 2.8 release page (probably soft link was changed).
So no 2.8.1 page available anywhere from
Hope should have a link to new release page.

Also, it is highly recommended to include INSTALLATION link
from the release page to reduce hairy questions from novice users
like most Windows95 people is.

Few more wording for "features" page:
