Well, this gets more confusing all the time. I don't know why or when it
was pulled from sourceforge, or if it was even ever there in the first
place. However, there's a version (in an lha file, no less!) that claims
to be 0.5.1 here:

Yet it refers one back to the SF project.

Freshmeat lists the latest version as 0.5. Debian distributes a 0.5.1
package and source package, but there's no indication in their changelog
where it came from. It has further diffs as well; you can see it all

So I dunno what to do about this. I dropped the original author a note
to see if he knows what's up. What do you guys think we should do: stick
to 0.5, or go with the weird, unofficial 0.5.1?

(Oh, and this was started because the package system couldn't seem to,
for some reason, grab 0.5.1 from the backup site. Maybe just a network
connectivity problem.)

it is on MASTER_SITE_BACKUP, however,so I'm not sure reverting to a
previous version is necessary... it might make sense in case it was
pulled because of a security problem, but that's just speculation...
