My understanding is that INHS has handed PAUP legally over to Dave and
is not distributing it.  Its unavailability is not due to whims on their
part.  Dave is trying to finish the new version and work out how it will
be distributed.

It has gotten to beta-testing.

Whether or not Sinauer will publish it, INHS will certainly not.

I suspect you will not find contacting INHS useful as they are not going to
publish it.
