> Considering a newer version is posted right above 1.2.1 version I assume most traffic is from direct links from a third party to the SourceForge binary. Otherwise most people would be opting for the newer one. My guess is that the majority of people downloading 1.2.1 from SF.net don’t even know there is a newer version and keep using an unsafe version.

Is there a way to get the Referer logs from SourceForge?

People who specifically need to find older versions can still get it from Xiph while people being sent to the outdated 1.2.1 version from a third party site will need to Google for it and will most likely stumble upon the relevant Xiph page and get the most recent version.
