Getgnash.org is primarily used for development snapshots, as official releases are built by the various distributions.

I've uploaded the Win32 build of Gnash 0.8.3 to getgnash.org -

We must be testing that these build and install before we cut a final release -- but we aren't putting them into getgnash.org. The latest debs are from the 0.8 release! The last Vista binaries are from 0.8.1.

We also aren't building new gnash binaries for older releases.
E.g. 0.8.3 Fedora rpm's are there, but only for Fedora 9. For Fedora 8 we have 0.8.2, for Fedora 7 we have 0.8.

Ideally when each new release has been cut, binaries for all platforms (F6, F7, F8, F9, various Debians, various Ubuntus, various Windows, etc) are all released simultaneously or shortly after. We used to have a build farm for this; do we now use virtual machines? Didn't I see a tinderbox somewhere?
