Yes, a unique innovation: Open source vapourware ;-)
Actually 0.6.3 is now there.

The list has been malfunctioning off and on for some time. SourceForge
has had all kinds of problems as they moved to a new ISP and a new
ftp server. It was these problems that prevented Dom from properly
releasing 0.6.3 only *after* it was announced.
I am not surprised that list archiving isn't working quite right either.
