Well, in my case, ignorance, and yes, that can be fixed. Formerly, 
uploading a new version obscured the old version compatible with TB 60, 
and authors didn't want that. I understand that you have fixed that, but 
I'm still unclear about the mechanics. What do ATN visitors see? What do 
they download manually? Is it hard to get to the TB-60-compatible version?

Maybe we can explore this if you point us to an example.

Also, if and add-on was made compatible with - say - TB 66, there is no 
guarantee that it's still compatible with TB 68, so authors might just 
wait until TB 68 beta ships in May.
