In #19316 we changed the update url from update_2 to update_3, to force Windows users to go through the 6.5.2 version, and warn them if they don't have SSE support. As this does not affect Linux and OSX users, we should add some redirects to update them directly to the new versions.

We should do that for the release channel. For the alpha channel, we don't need to exclude the Windows users from the redirect as we don't have any alpha version that can detect SSE support, so we can redirect all update_2 urls to update_3.

RewriteRule ^Darwin_x86-gcc3/(.*)$1 [last]

I checked that the following URLs are now redirected from update_2 to update_3:
