I was going by the labels/names used on the main download
http://elinks.or.cz/download/ page. I think it is just that the rest
of the site hasn't been updated to reflect this. I.e. this page
http://elinks.or.cz/download.html still lists 0.11 as the stable
release. The main page http://elinks.or.cz/ still refers to 0.11 as
current stable and 0.12pre6 as current unstable. However, the git tree
also hasn't been tagged with a 0.13 release either, so...

...I'll ask upstream about them at least tagging things in git, even
if, for whatever reason, they can't update the rest of the site.

Yeah, I can't say I thought that was a great idea either. Thanks for
the review and the advice.
