for download here.

even offering to rewrite the page with the correct information, but have
not yet received any response. Unfortunately, the only means of
contacting them, that I can find, is via a web form: It may encourage the FileHippo
website maintainers to update the information about our software if
other project members were to also contact them requesting this change.
