If there is an official release of source (e.g. 2.5.5 and 2.5.6) why 
aren't binaries produced (other than to make it really hard for users 
and force them to upgrade to a later major revision -- 2.6, 2.7, etc) ??

It's ok for Linux distros as they tend to build from sources, and test, 
and produce their own binary packages.  But for OS X and MSW users it's 
not quite like that.  I'd like to upgrade to 2.5.6 (for one particular 
mature application), but unfortunately I'm stuck with 2.5.4 as I don't 
really want to have to build (and hopefully get it right) on my OS X box.

Cheers, Brendan.
