Sorry for the long delay, folks - it seems that everyone in the project
  has been fighting real life lately.  Rest assured that we're doing
  the best we can - as with any project staffed by volunteers, there
  will be occasions when we simply don't have time to give it the 
  attention it needs.  However, unlike many projects in which the users
  depend on binary packages, you can always modify the provided build
  scripts to build later versions if needed.  As always, thanks for your 
  support, understanding, and patience.  Anyway, here's the latest:
