I got Safari today, and it is v.60. Why?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I downloaded Safari Beta today off the apple.com/safari page today. I like the browser a lot, and I explored all Safari's windows, dialogue boxs, etc. out of curiosity to see all of the browser. When I opened the About box, I came upon a strange piece of data. I saw:

1.0 Beta. (v.60)

I might be wrong, but I thought that Safari was in the upper 60's, like v69 or around there. Why do I have the first version? I downloaded it today! Please help, because I heard that there are many improvements in the newer versions. Thanks.

    v60 is the last public version that Apple has released. All the higher numbers that you hear about(62, 64, 67, 71, etc.) are illegal, pirated copies.

    Yes. I managed to get a copy of v 71 and I personally like it a lot. Does better at remembering passwords, a hair quicker, less of the weird little bugs I noticed.

    Where ever I downloaded it from, its now a dead link. I found out they (the person that offered up a copy from their own hosting) only put it up for 24 hours to avoid potential trouble.
