If you know the Slug, and you want it for anytime thats displayed on the Stat chart:

Once again, If you know the Slug, this should point to the latest: (Tagged 0.5 releases are <slug.0.5.zip i think)

You'll be interested in the api for wordpress.org which isnt documentated AFAIK
Check out: http://trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/wp-admin/includes/update.php#L43
You'll have to do some digging i think (It shouldnt be too hard to work out the structure from that code + a few Echo/print_r statements)

It would probably be nice for all that to be wrapped up into the api.wordpress.org with some documentation though.
