announced on this list. Since then there have been some updates, the
last one I still have in my archive was 6.0.127 on 2002-01-13.
There has no 6.1a release because Benji and I have been sending each

to get it removed.

I don't think a small version for PPC is useful, these machines are
quite powerful and have a lot of memory. (Next someone with a PMac
