Thanks. I need to get into port -d :-)

The new opencore is not mentioned in the /rss feed
(and the new libsndfile is not mentioned in the Changelog).
There are even newer versions I need to come up with.

However, "extracted version" sounds a bit confusing here,
given that "extract" is one of the port phases
- nothing's being "extracted" here, in that sense.

Could we make it "detected version" or something
not coliding with "extract"?
