* Which Version Should I Use?

If you are using GNOME 3:
  * Orca v3.1.3 is the latest unstable version of Orca.
  * Orca v3.0.3 is the latest stable version of Orca.

If you are NOT using GNOME 3:
  * Orca-xdesktop v.3.1.3 is an alternative unstable version of Orca,
    the goal of which is to provide the latest fixes and features
    without requiring users to upgrade to the latest version of GNOME.
    This version is likely to not work as expected in GNOME 3.x.

  * Fix for bug 653642 - Alt+F4 followed by Escape leaves the Orca 
    window closed - but Orca still running (all versions)

    doing is handling caret and focus tracking (version 3.1.3)
