The mirrors should have it shortly.

     This release corrects the bug just mentioned on the mailing list
which causes channel mode locks to be lost when XML data is imported.
I apologize sincerely for letting something like this slip through, and
I hope it hasn't affected too many people.  (The other two bugs in the
change log are minor ones that shouldn't come up under normal usage.
one results from a certain combination of debugging configuration flags;
the other arose while the XML bug was being fixed, and shouldn't occur
under actual use.)

Changes in version 5.1pre1
2007/05/14	Fixed a bug in XML import that caused channel mode locks to
		    be lost.  Reported by <loverboy at irc.doruk.net.tr>
2007/05/14	Fixed Services being unable to start if both the compatibility
		    strdup() function and memory checking were enabled.
2007/05/14	Fixed a potential crash with corrupt databases.
