There are some binaries for newer versions, mostly Linux RPMs, but
these are in different places.  I agree the FTP download area is a
mess.  I propose to give up on the FTP area and start over on the new
Zope-based web server, if and when it's ready.  Not enough people are
helping out, so it's going slowly.
