Goto the Binary Snapshot page:
http://gmarathon.sourceforge.net/article.php3?id_article=5
Note there is nothing there to indicate the version or
date of the snapshot.

Could you please include the date (YYYYMMDD) in the zip
file name.

I get confused going through the site about what
version of Marathon is being discussed. I mistakenly
downloaded the Version 2 binary thinking it was the
latest version, which I take it is version 3.
Consistant version numbering on the web site would be
good, also a version number in the product splash
screen and updating doco to specify Marathon 3 rather
than just Marathon might help as well ... but might
cause a lot of work when version 4 comes out ;-)

    Hi Paul,

    <<<Could you please include the date (YYYYMMDD) in the

    This could be a problem when we at the same time want to
    upload the daily snapshots to the SF files area. But I'll think a
    little bit about this...

    <<< get confused going through the site about what
    version of Marathon is being discussed.>>>

    Yes I agree with you that the current site is not the optimum.
    They should be made clearer and more consistent. Maybe
    you should contact Philippe Makowski directly about the
    issues you are having.

    Hi Paul,
    for now I have set my Marathon page as the project page.
    There is also a new section for snapshots. If you have any
    more suggestions please let me know.

    Regards,
    Tilo
