9.0.14 is the current release version, but it has not been updated in over a
year. The current development snapshot version is 9.0.17, and is the active

You should install the snapshot instead.

That file has undergone several revisions in the past year. You are using
an outdated version.

They have already been addressed.

Why always installing the latest snapshot instead of the release version.

You don't need one. Indy snapshots are available via HTTP and FTP mirrors
as well as CVS. Besides, the CVS client is a free download anyway.

Then you are not going to have the latest version as the official release is

especially with most of the focus on Indy 10 right now, so Indy 9 doesn't
receive much attention anymore except for occasional bug fixes only.
