How very annoying. IIRC I checked before sometime around April - May,
and could still find/download the free version. Oh well, guess I'll
have to keep my copy close then:-).
Note that the "(previously) free version" is not the same as the one
you cite above, so what they seem to have done is to have removed the
"pure commandline version" (where freebsd was a beta level release)
and added this "new" package with full support for freebsd (that is,
provided I do remember correctly... they seem to have removed
everything from their ftp server too. Sigh).

Hm. Means I'll have to do something about that wiki-page, now doesn't it?-)
