Version numbers for apr and apr-util are supposed to match, aren't they? Yet the apr package announced today is 1.3.5?

I thought the same, but we are following Salackware in these packages and they released them with this version numbers. As they seem to work for me (I just launched httpd) I didn't worry too much.
The sw packages are in patches and here is the changelog:
