Oh FUN. Thanks for pointing this out. That's an interesting side effect of
my change in infrastructure that I had not taken into account.

The way it determines the latest development version and the latest
release version is actually rather different. And with the web server and
the updatecheck server no longer being the same system, I ended up
breaking that logic. I can manually fix this right now, but I'll have to
think through a 'real' solution for this problem...

This is why it's so useful when the people here test the releases and
point out oddities.

Much appreciated!
