    Hi guys,

    I know there's RSS feeds for Patch releases, blog posts, and roadmap updates, but I noticed there's not an RSS feed for general releases of the engine, as well as for the Archives.

    Would it be possible to add these features to the website?

    I subscribed to the RSS and got a notification about 2017.4.2f2 with a link to this page:
    https://unity3d.com/unity/whatsnew/unity-2017.4.2

    Unfortunately, the page does not seem to contain any link where I can download this version. The two links at the top of the page point to some generic sites only.

    It would be very helpful if the page, that appears in my RSS feed, contains a (direct) download link to that specific version or a direct link to the page where I can download that specific version. Thank you in advance!

    Good point Peter77. I'm working with all the stakeholders to have the info properly presented. I will keep you posted.

    Why not use the Unity Hub & skip having to download any installers at all? Seems like a much easier flow to me.

    It's easier if you download the installer for a specific version, store it on a server and ask your team to install it from there, versus asking everybody to update the correct version through Hub.

    Bumping thread. Any chance we can get the LTS Release RSS feed to updated with valid links for each release's details/read more page? https://unity3d.com/node/61345 doesn't go anywhere helpful.

    The link to Unity 2017.4.26f1 in the "LTS-Releases" feed points to:
    https://unity3d.com/node/61345

    .. which displays an "Access denied, invalid credentials" message.

    The link to Unity 2017.4.26f1 in the "Unity Releases" feed points to:
    https://unity3d.com/unity/whats-new/2017.4.26

    ... which is the correct URL to download to this version.

    This issue goes on for a few months already. All recent links in the LTS-Releases feed are not working for me.

    @Peter77 Thank you for your report.

    I can see those links are now working fine. Do you still experience those issues? If yes would you have a non-working example?
