My final word on this, I just checked dev list, they were zapped on
24/11/14 because they were outdated with serious fixes since, and nobody
has bothered to update it, so do not assume they will return. 

Since this is completely off topic and you now have all the info you
need or are likely to get, this thread can die.

stop providing win32 binaries for HTTP server project? If your going to stop providing binaries
for win32, then also stop providing binaries for netware as well.
