Hi Thorsten, all

All old versions are available under
we just don't advertize that widely, they have less features, more
bugs, known security issues etc. ;)
Actually I always use the mirror mentioned by Rainer, which has all the
versions. (Thanks Rainer, I already knew about that hidden treasure ;) )
The "old" archive you pointed to contains a Portable folder for each version
regardless of if it exists or not... The Muenster mirror only has folders
for versions that do exist, which is more logic and more efficient.
In this particular case I wanted to go back to branch 3.5.x because of a
regression and it makes all sense that Portable version keeps up with a
branch that is still under development.
I agree that older versions have less features. But they don't necessarily
have more bugs and they have less regressions!
I think that it is bad enough that the official download page barely
mentions that a more stable version is available, actively updated and
I really don't understand TDF's logic...
