I'm not sure what you are talking about.

The old tarball was always a beta release.    It took a long time to get 
the actual release out, but that is due to the lack of reports.

Then they were mistaken.  It was always clearly marked as version 24b2 
(beta-release 2).

Someone could make a 24.1, but I don't see the need, and I'm not really 
interested in doing that.  I'm done with Numeric development as I've 
moved to scipy core.

I'm sorry for your consternation.
