I checked it out, and it seems that some of the mirrors don't have the files yet. I know that the several of the US mirrors do, but it may take some time for the files to propogate to other sites.

> After over a year of development with no releases, we are pleased to
present Tux Typing 2 "Preview" release. Most of the internals have been
rewritten with a focus on extensibility and internationalization. Creating
a language pack is now as simple as creating a file for translations
(lang.po file), maybe finding a font , setting up how the keyboard maps
to the characters , and finally creating some word lists.
> There is a new style of game "Comet Zap" and the start of tutor components
with the new "Practice" mode.
> We really look forward to getting feedback about what
parents/teachers/students/kids think about the new work. This release has a
few rough edges, but we feel that it is time to let the world see what has
been happening with Tux Typing.
> We have forums, mailing lists, and most importantly windows and linux
builds are available at http://tuxtype.sf.net
> We are already hard at work at 1.5.1 and hope to have it released soon
making it even easier for translators and users!

>  We are using a font that has support for many languages (Dansk,
English, French, Spanish, ...) So if the included font works with your
language, you don't need to find a new font.
>  for instance in the default (English) language pack, we set up the
game so if the student presses 'A' or 'a' it both works for "A".
