First of all, I like the new design. Crisps and clear, not too much information. But when I go to "Other Systems and Languages" I find 2 issues:

1) Why does a new menue appear at the left side of the side. This is a inconsistancy to the prior sites. Also the content of the submenue does not apply to the pageīs content! If you want to use a submenue: Place it on the same (right) side than the main sides. And fill it with menue items that are related to this (big) pageīs content: - Release Notes - what is new - system Requirements - windows - linux - other platforms - FAQ ...

2) Where are the "other languages"? Presuming, iīm a new (former IE) user from Europe, where do I find my (nationalized) version at first glance, at second glance .... ? I canīt find it! You should add a link to foreign language versions at a prominent place!

There is also a lot of information on the page "Other Systems and Languages". The information needs to be more structured. The difference between headers and subheaders is nearly unnoticable and doesnīt support the pageīs structure.

Is all of the information on this page really necessary for the "normal" users? Think about reducing the amount of information (moving it to other places of this website) and the page becomes more readable.
