Possibly. It's also likely that many people don't know about 2.1.
There are many programming sites which make no mention of 2.1 because
it's not a "release" version. They just provide a local copy of, or
direct link to, the 2.0.5 version. Many of the Linux distros are
shipping 2.0.5, but, some still provide 1.1.

Perhaps we should tag a 2.2 release and continue on with 2.3-dev/2.4.
Technically, that's no different than what we're doing. We have many
things to do. But, all the serious (reported) bugs are squashed for the
moment. 2.1 has come quite a long way, I think.
I might look into creating a RPM spec file (anyone up for a DEB?).
Might be nice to get the various Linux distros up to date.
