Yes, I saw Igor updated it, and I just tested the new package. When I 
run 'rsync --daemon --compress', I still get the following:

rsync: --compress: unknown option (in daemon mode)
(Type "rsync --daemon --help" for assistance with daemon mode.)
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at options.c(732)
