Right. This is not an announcement of a change in policy. The policy
change happened, naturally, many years ago, when nobody was around to
maintain Vidalia and nobody did anything to fix that.

This thread is simply letting people know that we noticed that the last
remaining Vidalia bundles on the download page hadn't been updated in
many months either, meaning the libraries they contained (like openssl)
hadn't been updated either, so it was harmful to leave them up for users
to stumble across.

Thanks Sebastian!
