The maintainer finally replied to the last of my three attempts to
contact him (very timely, regarding the different timezones we are in):

| I can't do much about it just at the moment. I've had a computer
| motherboard failure and while I've now got a new computer, I haven't
| got all my development tools running yet.
|
| I will update the DLL in the next release. Yes, I compiled the DLL
| myself. There wasn't a precompiled version at the time I started using
| it.
