I see that there is mod support for this game, but is there any easy place to find mods? Navigating the official forums is a nightmare.

Had this installed for ages, never got around to play it until today. Lot of fun, tho not very long; it's like an elaborate demo (which it's supposed to be aswell afaik) so don't expect a 20 hour game.

Best place to follow Flare development is probably project home page: Flarerpg.org

Last development update is from march 5th.

Desura version is outdated. As far as I can see the version offered by Desura both with client and direct download is 0.18 (don't know where you get the build 4 from) and, as you already noticed, the latest on developers site is 0.19 so you should download it from there instead. You can find the changelog for 0.19 here: Flarerpg.org

Is it Clint Bellanger's job to update this on Desura, or is this someone else's job. Why do games not get updated on here very often? Desura is useless if it doesn't update the games so that we can play them...

At least he's only memeber of the listed dev team but hasn't logged in for a year and his last comment is from over two years ago. On the other hand the above two news articles are writen by different people...
