When I looking at bugs board (here the link) I saw someone says there has version 5.1.0.6512 now. But when I look at downloads section, there only has version 5.1.0.6505 and seems the downloads section is abandoned. Where I can find the lastest version of DROD?

6512 is the Steam build, 6505 is the non-Steam build.

Other than Steam-exclusive features, both versions are equivalent.

6512 is the version I have (not Steam); Mac and Linux go to 6513 but I think the only differences are fixes to issues with those versions.

I can see a link to that on my downloads page.

The patches only go up to 6505, though. I think this may be because the later versions make changes to The Second Sky hold itself, which requires a reinstall and not just a patch.

There were changes to how some scripting commands work, which caused scenes in The Second Sky using those commands to not work properly. So the hold was modified in order to avoid those problems.

There's also a changelog thread in the Bugs forum if you want more details on what was fixed at each step.
