Hi Stephen,
Sure enough, you are right!

On the opengrads.org site, if you click the download link on the left, it transfers you to sourceforge.net. On that page there is a green banner that says "Download Latest Version 2.0.2.oga.2-win32_superpack. So that's what I've been using for a while, thinking that was the latest build. 

But if one chooses to ignore the banner and instead select the grads2 directory further down the page, there's a whole list of grads versions available.  

Now not all the posted versions have a windows build under them, but for version 2.1.a2.oga.1, there is a folder under it for Windows. And in that directory there is a win32_superpack.exe and .zip files. 

Glad you posted and forced me to dig deeper. And many thanks to DaSilva and Mike F for keeping the opengrads.org project going!
