thanks for putting back winGRASS6.4.1
but I am still getting quite a few questions whether a stable version of GRASS exists and whether this is a common practice
in GRASS community not to have a stable version.
In fact, when you go to the Download website, there is no obvious stable version there right now
given that GRASS6.4.2RC3 is just a release candidate and not really stable
(e.g. the RC3 binary has the mapcalc problem which has since been fixed but students
still report it to me and Martin suggested more time for testing with python2.7).
Even more confusing is that MacOSX has the 6.4.1 binaries and there is no 6.4.2RC3.
Maybe a simple fix would be to replace the current:
GRASS 6.4.2RC3 (stable version; new wxPython GUI, more...)
Most users will want to install this version.
GRASS6.4.1 stable version, most users will want to install this version.
GRASS 6.4.2RC3 release candidate available for testing
This should better reflect what is actually there when you click the links,
but others may have a better solution,
