Subject Re: Download Page Broken?
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2011 03:27:52 GMT
I very nearly wrote a response to this saying that .tar.gz links haven't worked for a long
time.

I too am a Safari user.

However, I went to double check and it now works for me with Safari 5.1.2 (new as of last
week).

Cheers,

Steve C
