Indeed. This is my bad, I copied the upgrade notes to the installation

Apologies, I'm fixing this right away.

This is indeed a little strange. I can tell from the activity of their
mailing-list that the openjade project is very much alive and active,
maybe noone pointed out that the project page is misleading? I'll send
something to that effect.

Thank you.
