    Apparently the 4.2.0 folder does not contain any Windows version. The "latest" link offers Windows 32bit, precisely what I don't want for Windows 7 64bit and the special Windows 2000 case (if it still is special for 4.2.0, it was for 4.1.3). Disclaimer, lousy GPRS/EDGE connection, SourceForge hates mobile users, maybe I simply don't see what is there.

    JFTR, oorexx.org is still at 4.1.1, I've updated Wikipedia and stolenadded the logo.

      Well, they are definitely there. At:

      https://sourceforge.net/projects/oorexx/files/oorexx/4.2.0/

      By default, the order shown is newest to oldest. The Windows builds were
      put up first, so by default they will be towards the very bottom of the
      list.

      But like most similar things, you can click on the column headers to change
      the order. Click on the Name column header to sort by the file name. The
      Windows builds sort towards the bottom, so click a second time to reverse
      sort them by name and you will see them towards the top.

      Yeah, I would pretty much ignore that "Latest" link.

      and the special Windows 2000 case (if it still is special for 4.2.0, it
      was for 4.1.3).

      Windows 2000 is not supported at all by Microsoft any more. The Microsoft
      compilers no longer produce binaries that will work on Windows 2000. So,
      that package needs to be built special.
