I'll check into these - that's unexpected.

That's expected. The QtCurve guys don't leave older versions on the
site, so our links break as soon as they release an update.
They release updates pretty frequently, and it's a waste of our time
to update the scripts with a simple VERSION bump every week or so;
therefore, we leave that to the users.  We'll push an update every
now and then, especially if the new release requires more than a
simple VERSION increment, but don't expect us to follow upstream
development on projects with insane release cycles.
