Thanks for pointing out the broken links.  The problem has been fixed 
(the links were right, but I forgot to copy the "dist" directory to the 
new web site when I moved it, and so the links weren't pointing at 
anything.  The dist directory for adding new installers is now located 
at "/var/www/org.kepler-project.www/dist" for those of you whi might be 
adding new releases.  Sorry for the oversight.  Also, the Java Web Start 
version wasn't working (AFAIK) so I removed the link from the Wiki 
page.  If somene fixes the JWS, please add the link back to the wiki 
page.  Thanks.
