Well, your question was recieved by Freefall at Mon Oct  9 16:18:41 1995
which means that most people on this list didn't even see it until earlier
this morning.  It amuses me to think that you expect < 24h response from
a *free* service.  As far as stability, the SNAPSHOTs are "BETA" quality
test releases, and anyone here knows that they are not the final *stable*
product that will be 2.1.

Anyway, I'll answer your question.  Just as a refresher, this is what I
pulled out of the mail archives:

should be availible tomorrow sometime.
