Where can I find the actual archive of the stable 42.0 version? I maintain a stable (prod) package for Arch Linux as well as the emacspeak-git package. I fetched version 41.0 successfully some while back but now I can't find 42.0 anywhere. I realize most folks probably pull from git and use a latest snapshot. Are actual stable releases no longer being maintained as stand-alone downloads? Google Code shows nothing later than version 39 or 40. I found version 41 on google code in an svn/wiki/downloads section but since you migrated to github, I haven't been able to find an actual snapshot for 42.0. I guess I could specify a specific git tag or something but I don't quite know how you have structured the tags in your git repo. Can you clarify for me? On Thu, Apr 30, 2015 at 10:37:56PM +0000, T.
