 The new wordpress.org/download/ page looks good, but I noticed some
 helpful links to resources are no longer available on the redesigned page.

 The previous /download/ page included a section called "More resources"
 which included links to the following:

  * All Releases
  * Beta/Nightly Versions
  * Download Counter
  * Source Code

 It would be helpful to add these links to the new page design. I
 personally find the link to /download/releases/ the most important link to
 re-add, the /download/releases/ page provides visitors historical
 releases, tarball copies, IIS versions and checksums to validate their
 downloads are legitimate.

 Here is an indirectly related Reddit thread where someone brings up that
 they could no longer find tar.gz copies of WordPress after the redesign.

 For reference purposes, in case you would like to look what these pages
 linked to before. Here is the archive.org link for the old design.

 Thank you
