That's great.  I just got back and have lots of mail to catch-up with,
but was very happy to see this announcement.  Thank you for shepherding
it through the stability period Stepan.

These builds are proving very popular, so we need to move these builds
over to the mirrored directory tree.  I'll start doing that today
without disrupting the existing download page, and let you know before
doing the switch.
