Yepp. Please remove/change this version-listing since 188.8.131.52 probably only is a really unstable beta that can't be found easily. The latest public version at the moment is 0.9.9
The latest version is 1.0, it is really beta, you can download it by choosing version 1.0 in the "Select version" tab, which can be found beside the program's name, and clicking on the download button there, version 1.0 will be downloaded.
