Hi everyone,

our release manager software now also generates checksum files (SHA1
and MD5) for fat tarballs like as you can see on

Included in these fat tarballs are checksum files for the individual
releases, so verifying your downloads is now very easy no matter which
download option you choose.

Together with the awesome new MirrorBrain setup (the entire download
archive is mirrored to several servers worldwide; you can see what
mirrors are available by clicking on 'Details' next to all files on our servers should now be prepared for the
download madness that we suppose will take place next Sunday or
Monday after Xfce 4.8 will have been released.

Say thanks to Nick and Jean-Francois for their hard work on improving
our server infrastructure!
