Nope, latest is still 

File: daily.cvd
Build time: 26 Jan 2018 04:24 -0500
Version: 24257
Signatures: 1835982
Functionality level: 63
Builder: neo
MD5: 3b3092994fdf9aa39aae480c38fb31ab
Digital signature: D7RfRs/Zbl/2fFW4FZKHoHskjH5BWU1K/Qqyhc0qEyO4bHblupzLq/m3oJo4CfcVfysd3cOMZNPhwRzTzJlKTGWQx4Y4VT/jhM+5NOI8tcVZgFzpvQE699hBHggYRqDZq+mlTiFNmZ7pCUR9ACmso3uElfFpRZP4oy4I3ULxkXg
