GPMAW has existed since 1987, and since then new versions have been released at least once every year. For some time a new version was released every time a new feature was added, but IT-departments are not happy about too frequent updates. So a compromise has been made with a new release 9-12 month apart, and more frequent beta versions, that users with a valid license are free to download.
A list of previous releases going back to 2002 (not all links are active):
