I think we can put out our press release now, with 5.0 foss4g background.

We can change the ISO to 5.0.1 with a generic background later.

However, I suggest changing the 1 image in the docs before releasing to 
the generic background.

I suggest that we should, but it is quite simple to do. We only need to 
change 1 file from:

Or we remove the link to Win & Mac installers for the website. This is 
my current preference.
But I can take on the task of creating a list of installers. I just 
think this page is starting to look unprofessional having a simple page 
without headers and footers and potentially having links that become 
dated between releases:
