Tested with 2.4 - 3.2, it's right there on the front page :)
I've never had a chance to test with 2.3 as it seems non-trivial to
install that on OSX but if you can run the test suite on 2.3 and let
me know if it works I'd appreciate it. You'd need to add 2.3 to the
list of versions to test in tests/run_tests.sh and then run "make
tests" in the root of the package tree.
