The new web site looks nice and crisp.

I have another suggestion.  It would be very useful if there was an
additional page/note at the download section which tells folks as to
what software is required to use te binaries.  Something like a

Wow! this sounds very good.

I have been thinking of starting a sourceforge project on creating a
vtk-pkg project where people can contribute binaries for different
architectures with readmes describing whatever is necessary.  I havent
had any time to do anything on this.  Would it be possible to do this
with the new approach to the website?  We could have a contributed
section with a set of files that are uploaded with an accompanying
README that basically contains a form with all the details that the
user needs to install the VTK binary.  This would ease the process of
installing VTK esp. for people who are new and who would be scared by
the sheer size of VTK and the long compile times.
