<h3><a name="releases">Current Releases</a></h3>
<p>For details on current releases, please see the
<a href="">Apache Pivot Download Page</a>.</p>

<h3><a name="archive">Older Releases</a></h3>
<p>Only current, recommended releases are available on
and the mirror sites. Older releases, when available, can be obtained from the <a
href="">archive site</a>.</p>

<h3><a name="sig">PGP Signatures</a></h3>
<p>All of the release distribution packages have been digitally signed
(using PGP or GPG) by the Apache Group members that constructed them.
There will be an accompanying <SAMP><EM>distribution</EM>.asc</SAMP> file
in the same directory as the distribution. The PGP keys can be found
at the <a href="">MIT key repository</a> and within
this project's <a href="">KEYS</a> file.

<p>Always use the signature files to verify the authenticity
of the distribution, <i>e.g.</i>:</p>

% pgpk -a KEYS
% pgpv
% pgp -ka KEYS
% pgp
% gpg --import KEYS
% gpg --verify

<p>We offer MD5 hashes as an alternative to validate the integrity
of the downloaded files. A unix program called <code>md5</code> or
<code>md5sum</code> is included in many unix distributions. It is
also available as part of <a
href="">GNU Core Utilities</a> package.</p>
