This has now been released - Sword 1.7.3 final has flown the coop.

Packagers, please take note. To the best of my knowledge this is a bug-fix
only release and is both API and ABI compatible with previous releases in
the 1.7 series. In addition to the changes mentioned above, an additional
set of bugs that fixed improperly URL-encoded text and addressed multiple
functional deficiencies in the flatapi.cpp binding file were included in
this release. It is (or at least should be) identical to the 1.7.3alpha2
tarball that went out previously except in the naming of the file.

Fedora packages for rawhide are currently being built. I'm not sure if I
will pull this update back to F20 or not yet.
