It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Upgrade: (a) overwrite your ./include, ./libraries files and the gwan executable with the new files and then (b) run G-WAN once without -d (daemon mode) to make sure that the maintenance, servlet and handler scripts compile.
"To sum up: (a) First dimension: things change too quickly, breaking both open source and proprietary software alike; (b) incompatibility across Linux distributions. This killed the ecosystem for third party developers trying to target Linux on the desktop. You would try once, do your best effort to support the 'top' distro or if you were feeling generous 'the top three' distros. Only to find out that your software no longer worked six months later." –Miguel de Icaza, "What Killed the Linux Desktop"
January 2016 release (v7.12.2, maintenance release: system workarounds).

When will the next release be available?
We are often asked when the next G-WAN release will be published. We do our best at fixing platform issues (LIBC updates, etc.) to let people continue using G-WAN but G-WAN, as a freeware, will never represent a significant part of our revenues so, unless some users sponsor the features they are asking for (like they do for less-performing and security-issues-crippled open-source projects), our company has no choice but to focus on its own needs – the reason why we wrote G-WAN in the first place. And right now, this is our provably-secure G-WAN-based Cloud offer: Global-WAN.com
