     Is this the wrong site ??

Well it depends on what you mean by "the wrong site".  

The official site for released versions of pspp is, and always has been  (there is also a list of mirrors at )

What you installed is a precompiled binary of a snapshot from the git repository
(note the word "snapshot" in the object you downloaded).  Pspp uses the 
convention (in common with many other software) that even numbers in the second 
field are stable releases, whereas odd numbers are unreleased snapshots.  (9 is 
an odd number).

Until recently, we did not have this explicit warning but decided to add it 
because it appeared that some users were unaware of this convention.

The version you have installed is unlikely to have serious bugs, but as it is on
the "bleeding edge" of development, it has not been fully tested and you should 
bear that in mind.  One known issue with your version is that the Window menu 
does not work properly.  There might also be other issues that we are not (yet) 
aware of.  If you discover such issues, then please report them.
