Wait, wait, wait.

"TortoiseSVN 1.6.0 released
Please don't forget to first read the release notes!"

"TortoiseSVN downloads
The current version is 1.6.0
For detailed info on what's new, read the changelog and the release notes."

Doesn't really seem much different to me... if you thought that I mean
linking directly to the downloads on SourceForge - that's not it.

(NB: If I'm wrong and the automatic update dialog indeed links to
http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads please ignore this...)
