@caleb this is the upstream-s project: you can find the new license there. It forbids educational use, so while not at odds with my personal goals, I won't use the thing.

@vasya I really don't know what versions they are, I was just looking for sources to complete a project that expected to be able to download from the original upstream — which is of course AWOL at the moment. That's the only reason I even heard about the license issue. Do we know what the license will be if/when it ever comes online again? Given that one of the repos I linked to was posted 5 years ago apparently this isn't the first time the download has been pulled!

caleb: on your edited comment. Both of the github repos provide a different binary. I'm not sure what their versions are, are they really not violating the licence (old-enough version)? Would be nice to use a version that doesn't violate the license...

Indeed, it's offline for me as well now (Netherlands). I've temporarily pushed it to my personal file storage, though there are no guarantees for longlevity. sha512 is the same.

EDIT: I don't know any other "standard" or "more stable" sources though. If you have any suggestions, feel free to share.
