We've updated the build history and added links for releases 5.00.08 through 5.00.11 and for 6.00.04.

I'll take this opportunity to remind you that your organization is responsible for license fees to Microsoft and possibly Datalight when you upgrade production units to a newer version of CE (e.g. 4.2, 5.0, 6.0). We will send you a license agreement to acknowledge before we send you 6.0 releases.
