On many localized sites I see a download recommendation for 4.0.1 without any warnings. That is unacceptable lightheaded, 4.0.1 is the first bug correction after 4.0.0. what really only was for hardboiled early testers.
Please add a hint for whom this version can be recommended (still early interested testers) like on <http://de.libreoffice.org/download/>
and add a link direct ink to 3.6.5 for normal users on the same page
[de][sr] link for 3.6.5 not prominent enough
[eo][tr] should not show green checkbox for 4.0.1
[sv] Missing warning, missing prominent link to 3.6.5
[zh-cn] should not show green checkbox for 4.0.1
[vi][zh-tw] Missing warning, should not show green checkbox for 4.0.1, Missing prominent link to 3.6.5
I only added some examples hire, it's too expensive for me to write down all results. More or less all localized websites have at least one of following problems:
a) missing warning (early testers only)
b) missing prominent link to 3.6.5 for normal users
c) checkbox on green circle for 4.0.1 or 4.0.0
Certainly an issue - IMHO we do need to improve this even for the en_US site - which (AFAICS) doens't make it particularly easy to see the older versions either.
Not directly related, but worthy of remark: the Auto-Updater recommendations are well-thougt-out May be that mechanism can somehow be used for the website?
Related: Similar request for Portable LO version:
The website now much better differentiates between
* fresh channel
* still channel
That solves this bug.
http://de.libreoffice.org/download/ even has the requested warning about 4.3 being very early.
Such warning not exist in main site: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/

> Such warning not exist in main site:
Indeed. There seems to be some room for improvement.
I would think of something in the following direction:
"LibreOffice Fresh is the version with the most and latest features, but this comes with more glitches that are not yet solved.
For conservative users, the Still version might therefore be a better idea.
In general however, from version X.Y.2, the number of problems with the Fresh version is pretty low for most users."

All, anything that is not directly related to LibreOffice code is done on RedMine. Check out the tracker issue #793 there.
