The current versions of beamer at Sourceforge, CTAN and under MiKTeX 2.5 =
the same: 3.06. This does not appear to hold though for the pgf =
the Sourceforge version somehow appear slightly older. The xcolor =
has been updated very recently on CTAN and is now at 2.10, but not yet =
MiKTeX, which is at 2.09 - I couldn't find it on Sourceforge. However =
your log, you apear to have an even older version: 2.00! Just how and =
did you update?
Why not use the MiKTeX package manager and udate wizard?
