 Replying to [comment:28 cal@…]:
 > No. The topmost entry is 9.19 RC1, but the next one is 9.19 final. I'm
 not sure why GitHub orders them in this way.

 I agree that ordering the RC higher than the (apparently non RC) is
 confusing.  But that wasn't my only source of confusion.  The
 https://github.com/ArtifexSoftware/ghostpdl-downloads/releases showed (and
 still shows today; eg screenshot I just attached) the badge "Latest
 Release" against 9.18 (which is below 9.19).  Which made me guess that,
 eg, Ghostscript was doing even=stable, odd=development release numbering.

 From what you (and Kurt @ [comment:31]) say, and checking at
 http://ghostscript.com/download/ (which shows 9.19 downloads), it seems
 the github badge is just in the wrong place, and "9.19" should actually
 have that "Latest Release" badge.  (The fact they all have the same
 "released on" dates on that github page doesn't help either -- but that's
 probably an artefact of uploading them all at once.)

 Thanks for investigating and fixing the checksum mismatch.
