I can confirm this is happening. Looking in the downloaded file I see:

 We're sorry -- the Sourceforge site is currently in Disaster
 Recovery mode, and currently requires the use of javascript to
 function.  Please check back later.

The link gives you a 404 error. Looks like there
are others seeing this ...

Hmmm it has been over 23 hours since SF tweeted to @sfnet_ops there is a problem.

It is tempting to have the RSB point to before a project's home
sites for branches. For releases the RSB does this because a release is static
and the net can change over time. The problem with doing this is not see a
change in a project and we do not know.
