@mentions @chrismessina At least point to the article on the official Slack website. This link and update is not valid or official from Slack either.

The website is confuse. Why not point to an Official Slack download site?

Going by the article, you can't download this version from official site yet. Official site still holds the old slower version. You will be updated automatically in the next few weeks if you are running Slack desktop. The website is for Linux version of Slack. https://slackhq.com/introducing-...
