“latest”

I’ve got a pet peeve with reports where people say they have the “latest” version of fink, or Xcode, or etc.

The problem is that of temporal location.  If a new version comes out between the time message is sent and when I read it, then the poster’s “latest” isn’t going to be my “latest”.    And if more than one version comes out (which can happen) then things get downright confusing.
