Exactly, ok how am I saying its dfarc 3.2.1 rather than 3.2.3 by two
things. When I click on Dfarc and Check Help > About > it shows as
3.2.1 rather than 3.2.3 .  Also DFArc-news.txt shows 3.2.1 as the last
release.  An extract from the news file.

* v3.2.1

- Internationalization: translated in Finn

* v3.2

** User-visible changes:

- Rename distro packages from dfarc to freedink-dfarc, for clarity,
  and because this version supports FreeDink-specific features.

** Developer notes:

- Supports /usr/share/games and /usr/local/share/games in addition to
  /usr/share and /usr/local/share by default.

- Add source for wxglade UI files in release tarballs.
