Hi Kasper,

This is because a failing unit test was causing the package to not propagate
to our website.
This has been fixed and the new package will appear by midnight (Pacific
time) tonight.

If you need it before then, you can check it out from svn and build it on
your machine.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
