Description

When following the link to "Current supported release" on  http://www.parrot.org/download, the url for the resulting link (and directory) says "stable".

To avoid ongoing confusion about the meaning of "supported", "developer", and "stable" it would be nice if the "supported releases" were in a directory named "supported" instead of "stable".

Problem confirmed. When I go to  the Download page, and click on  Current supported release, I am taken to  ftp://ftp.parrot.org/pub/parrot/releases/stable/1.4.0/.

But wouldn't this require someone with admin privileges to fix?

Thank you very much.

All the advertised links say supported now, but I added in a symbolic link on the ftp server so that the old stable links will still work.

rurban++ for pointing out the issue with the old links.
