There was recently a version announced on one list which I did not see 
announced on the other. It struck me as odd. I don't remember which and 
I'm sorry but I don't feel inspired to wade through the lists to figure 
it out. I wouldn't suggest it was anything more than an accidental 
oversight, btw.

Again, it doesn't matter if it's been announced. If it's placed in a 
publicly available download location, alongside other releases, it is 
"released". These are accessed from a plainly available link on the 
LiveCode .com website. The link is labeled "View All LiveCode 
Downloads". These unannounced versions have release dates and release 
notes. There is nothing to indicate these are merely "almost releases" 
and "not to be downloaded until some future date".

The staging process is missing a step and it's not the fault of the 
downloaders.
