As it is the nature of daily build, the daily builds from the fix date
have already been replaced with more recent versions. The above URL was
put in as an example for people who want to know what a full path would
look like; that's why it says «e.g.» in the beginning. In reality, you
can choose any build later than the fix date, e.g. the one from today,
and you'll be fine.

Hope that helps,
