unofficial in the sense that we do not guarantee that they'll ever be available.

it is very likely that what we have now will be available in the future.
it's mainly a question of what platforms we have around at TeCGraf.
for instance, we had 3.1 binaries for AIX 3 but we don't have 3.2 binaries
for 3.2 because we no longe have AIX 3 (only AIX 4).
I guess Windows will be around for a while.
