It is indeed. It has just been lagging and that's what bothers me. I have reason to believe that this situation is about to change soon.

The "dast" site being mine, of course says that since that is what people tell me. Although I have nothing against anyone downloading whatever version they please, no matter how old it is, it bugs me a little when people put a lot of efforts on digging around in the sources and produce patches that are already fixed in later versions... It doesn't seem to be the best way to move the project forward.

That may be the correct assumption, yes.

You're welcome to post more details about this, preferably including a fix... ;-)
