please note that there is no released version 1.8.7.

only alpha test versions, and john just posted a message
on how to get them a few days ago. you should be aware
that those compilations contain lots of experimental
code and not thoroughly tested code and some of the
features may change without notice until a final version
is publically released.

if you download an alpha version, please have a close look
at the changelog and consider giving feedback to the developers
on the newly added or changed functionality on your system.
