Right, you want the *tagged* version, not the branch.  Due to the way 
the testing branch was being used, we roll back the version format to 
TESTING-[DATE] after a pre-release, so it's clear its not in a released 
state any longer.

Err, that'd be the one *already fixed* for the 6.1-pre2 release I 
believe. See
