The files aren't removed automatically -- it's done by whomever uploads
the new version. Just include a request in your update message to leave a
particular version (in your case, 1.8.3) as prev. Unless explicitly said
otherwise, the version you're asking to upload is assumed to be the new
curr. Upset should pick up the latest version as curr and the one right
before it as prev.
