The answer is no, you never saw the things behind the scenes.

The last time: everybody was happy, FPC 2.2.4 was uploaded and a day
before it was announce, a serious *SECURITY HOLE* was detected, so we
decided to bite the bullet and decided to fix, rebuild and move the tag.
Now I stop it, you don't get it. But I see, you would have skipped
2.2.4, started over again with 2.2.6-rc1 and delayed the release of a
new fpc version another 4 months ...
