​sad to say, we have exactly the same problem. With HTTP downloads it is
much worse, we could not find a stable and reliable version after 4.x.
Sadly nobody wanted to fix our syslinux problem, even as paid development.

I very much hope that the syslinux project will overcome these obstacles.
It would be sad to see all the new development stay unused because if this.
