I am not familiar with how things should be.

As fas as I know there are real changes only in the libraries and 
therefore in the help. Also I have redesigned the chm file. Of course 
these changes are also reflected in the current source.

But in the instruction for package maintainers there is a passage 
stating the source version must match the binary version. This would 
mean, that I must also upload the base package, whenever there is a 
change in the shares, help or icons, to keep the sources uptodate.

This is no more work for me, because locally I always created all packages.

I have also uploaded the base bins and sources at:
