Hi,Is there a way to stop the download button from suggesting files from releases earler than my latest 3.9.0 release?? I opened a ticket last week (#7060 How to disable Download button to older version) and in the helpful answer i was shown how to work around the Download Button showing file choices from the wrong version of my software for mac users. The answer sort of works, however, after exploring this further the button still shows incorrect files if the visitor is not logged in. Ive visited my site without logging in several times on a mac the past few days and the download button guves offered me several different files to download, none of them correct (it offered the source archive and an ubuntu zip from release 3.8.0). If I log in, then the button shows the correct file (which, for mac users, is a read me that tells them to get the app for free on iTunes app store…)

    It looks like the setting was updated properly, but that portion for the summary page was incorrectly cached. I clicked "Update" on your Metadata page to force and update and it appears to have fixed this.

    Also note that this was just a display problem. If users had clicked it, they would have received the default as configured (ie., the txt file).
