Really? You are complaining about something free not being released? The author will release his work for free when he is comfortable and ready to release it for free. If you want it so bad, then yes pay $5. Go to any dollar store or convenient store, and get a preloaded credit card for $5. Perhaps you are still a child? Then ask your parents, and if they say no, tough. Welcome to the real world. Be glad any version of this project exists for free.
Also, 18.104.22.168 doesn't count as a new version, it is just a minor change, probably a bug fix.
