I have pulled the release from the server for 2 reasons:

1. I compiled and left debug turned on. this made binaries extremely

2. They where compiled on a RedHat 6.2 machine and there have been some
reports of compatibility issues surrounding a few libraries when installed
on other distros.

I will re-build and let everyone know when a new build is available. For
those brave people that want to try anyways you can get the build at:
