No. They are from the actual release, I added a readme file to sourceforge
that notes that msvc-12.0 doesn't have a working serialization build and to
look at the release notes for more info.

The fade out process isn't terribly long, I think anything you can see on
there has been run within a couple weeks, so for the future I would
consider all of them active.

Sorry about that, it was on my todo list, but never got to the top. I'm not
sure what to do about the getting started guide, the windows version is
rather hard to follow and could really use an entire re-write. Failing
that, we could probably re-add a similar section mentioning that the binary
installers are available from sourceforge.
