Thats an older OLSRd, but it should be okay.

We are discussing about releasing OLSRd 0.6.3 at the moment, but got a 
report about a quagga bug in the last second.

You can look into the git logfile of the "stable" branch.

There should be a signed tag called "OLSRD_0_6_1_fixed".

the 0.6.2 release if the tag "OLSRD_0_6_2", the current stable is in the 
stable branch.
