if you really must, you can browse the subversion repository and find 
the appropriate "tag", e.g. for 2.7.1 you'd go to


download it with "svn checkout <url> ardour-<version>".

but think twice - this is open source, so the (volunteer) developers 
will listen to your reports with a lot more interest when you're using 
the latest version.
since ardour2 is in feature freeze, it's rare that really nasty new bugs 
are being introduced, so the latest is almost always better than some 
previous one at this point.

and if you need that old version to find out when a particular bug was 
introduced, you'll get a lot more fine-grained information if you bisect 
single svn commits (you can update to a particular release with the "svn 
update -r <release_number>" command.
