#402 closed change (fixed)

Use a redirector script for downloads, not a direct link

Currently the sitescripts.extensions.bin.updateDownloadLinks script generates various download links. These links are being included into Anwiki pages using an Anwiki plugin. As the pages themselves only update once per hour this introduces unnecessary delays on new releases - in addition to complicating the switch from Anwiki to our CMS.

What to change

Don't use direct links in the pages, use a fixed link like that will redirect to the actual download link.

Given #401 it might also make sense to separate generation of download links from generation of update manifests.
