> The download area gives 5.4.4 as the latest released version.
> The work area says there are no pre-release versions at all, but lists 5.4.5 as the latest release.
> Given the SHOUTY FUSS over the 5.4.5 release (and the problem of people apparently not being aware of the pre-release versions before it came out), it would be nice to fix this.
> As it is, only people who subscribe to the mailing list will know there’s a 5.4.6 pre-release they could be trying out right now.
> (I went to the work page to fetch 5.4.6, in case there had been a new release candidate; found nothing at all; got confused!)
> The inconsistency in the “latest release” lists in the download and work areas is weird. 5.4.5 was released; if it has been officially de-released then that really ought to be made clear in both places, because as things stand, it is listed to be an official release, with a bunch of bug fixes including patched vulnerabilities that can cause crashes… yet it is not there when you go to download it.

Sorry about the mess. 5.4.6 was out as a kind of "emergency release".
We wanted to stop the propagation of 5.4.5 asap, so the site may not
have been properly updated.
