Hi Larry,

this is because some time ago, when QGIS has version around 0.11,
fTools was not core plugin, but 3rd part one. Later, it was accepted to
core, but also remain available in Carson's repo. Now all development
on fTools is done in master.

AFAIK, fTools bundled with QGIS has correct version, but in repository
we have an old version which have same number (0.6.1). I ask Carson
several times about fTools version from his repo but unfortunately get
no response.
