Typically I put new versions in there when I am working with someone
on a specific problem. The "officially" supported version is the
last major archive in the /emerald directory, though.

They are basically the same version, except 86 has a batch delay
option (don't use it). See the changes.txt in the 84 archive for
all the gory details. :)

Play with it, don't gripe too much, and you'll see more like that.
The more I get hammered about "beta" releases, the less likely we
will put more of them up there.
