Links to download compiled JAR seems to point to source code download

No matter what type of license you choose, all links to download the compiled JAR appear to download the source code.

It seems to be working correctly for me. When you mouseover the download link, what address do you see?

It should be something like: https://github.com/plantuml/plantuml/releases/download/v1.2024.5/plantuml-mit-1.2024.5.jar (NOT https://github.com/plantuml/plantuml/releases/download/v1.2024.5/plantuml-mit-1.2024.5-sources.jar)

Thanks for your answer.
The links are correct, just as you say. But the content that is downloaded does not have a *.jar file. What is downloaded is a zip containing a folder structure very similar to what is downloaded from the link to download the source code.
Maybe I'm confused, but I was hoping to download a *.jar, just like I was able to download from SourceForge, which is the one I'm using.

@Daniel I tried the downloaded jar file on Windows and Linux, it opens the PlantUML application correctly on both. Could you please try with the link that I posted in the above comment, and see if that works? I took that link directly from the download page.

That being said though, it does look unusual to me that the sources archive also has an extension of .jar.
