Yes, Einstein does not support TCP/IP yet so you won't be able to
actually connect to anything with Einstein. If you just want to show
screenshots of the NetHopper interface (without any page loaded) then
you'll need to install NIE and all that jazz.

2007.7 is the latest. It's possible that the version string wasn't
updated in the plist that shows the version number in the about
window. As long as you downloaded that version from Google Code then
you should be good.
