Hi Habs,

I can update FlowBlade, but if your build is going well, it's probably 
just as good as whatever I'll post. You can start editing with what 
you've got.

I don't personally like to rush into updates on stable software. I'll do 
some testing of the latest FlowBlade and update the build assuming 
nothing crashes and burns horribly.

I'd love to hear other maintainer's input about checksums from github. 
To my knowledge, there are none from Github upstream unless the 
developer goes out of their way to post them somewhere. For SBo, I just 
generate an md5sum based on what I've downloaded and put that into 
.info. Not great, I know, but at least it's a fingerprint.
