I don't blame anyone, sorry if it sounded so.
I just wanted to post the solution to the list, in case in future anyone
has the same problem.

I recognized to late, that the link on the main page is to a version

Merely I explicite appreciate the comprehensive documentation available,
such isn't common in the open source world.
