The md5 checksums are also in the release notes (which you can find by
clicking on the little notepad by the release on the download page).
Here are the release notes for the 1.2.0 release:
http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?group_id=1369&release_id=628858

Of course, that is terribly difficult to find.  I haven't been able to
figure out a better way to have sourceforge display checksum
information.  Ideally, they could display the checksum information
like they do for the filesize and architecture information:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=1369&package_id=175103&release_id=628858

If anyone knows how to make sourceforge display this information,
please let me know.

I would also like it if you could somehow embed the checksum in the
URL.  Maybe something like this:
