As you may know, I made 1.9.5 and 1.9.6 bug fixing releases.
But I encounter another problem: I uploaded incorrect tarballs to sf.net.
This happend because I created these releases in CVS branch,
but "make dist" doesn't know anything about CVS tags and branches
and checkouts HEAD CVS version.
So, 1.9.5 and 1.9.6 tarballs at sf.net were just CVS snapshots.
I've uploaded correct tarballs to sf.net.
Redownload them again if you need.
Those who uses CVS directly may update versions using dictd-1-9-5
and dictd-1-9-6 tags.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
