It seems some users are reporting that common decompression applications on Mac and Windows and failing to decompress our release builds. Command line decompression works as expected.

I just tried downloading from the "now serving" link in Win2K on IE 6, and it opened as expected under WinZip?. Marking "works for me".

I've had people report the same thing for me on the Really Simple History library; the reports have flowed in the last month or two. I still can't isolate what's going on, but I know it's real since it's been reported by several people for me. I can't replicate it though. I've tried compressing with different tools. I found a workaround though: offer a TAR version, which works for them. I think there is something in my web server configuration, or perhaps in their network stack, that corrupts the ZIP file. I imagine the same thing is happening for the Dojo ZIP file. Reopening ticket, since I think this is real - a workaround is to offer a TAR, which Dojo can do.
