Some humble input :)

The logo for the banner was updated a while back, you can download it  




Also, I wonder if you could add a width to the content of the front  
page. The lines run too long, the original design was set to "width:  

I also suggest removing the titles from the side bar:

  "get grok"
  "grok news"

and switch so the download/release box comes above the news.

and Happy New Year :)
