When I try to download the zip file it says "Invalid/empty data or corrupted file" It would be nice if you put some information about what the package contains on the website with every release, the containing packages and the version of the packages for example.

Just fixed that, thanks for pointing it out. For some odd reason it didn't copy a file... that's strange, I'll have to remember to check for that before announcing in the future.

 contains on the website with every release, the containing packages and

Yes, I do that normally, however, the software randomly decided to not display that information even when I put it there. I was far too tired to try and fix that last night, but I just finished doing that, so there should be something there now.
