Surely a Beta is never `released'!  We will consider using Inno Setup 3.x
once it really is released.

As far as I know we do not intend to build the 1.6.1 binary with Tcl
8.4.x, and the documentation does say that 8.3.x is required. A given
build has to use either 8.3 or 8.4 as the DLLs have different names.
Given the prevalence of 8.3, we won't I believe be moving to 8.4 for a
patch release. Maybe rw1070 will use Tcl 8.4.x.

(I did add a patch to tcltk.c to allow it to build correctly under Tcl
