No, they are not available any more as they are completely obsolete.
Here is a bit of history -- I wrote the following on the comparison page
(about five years ago):

    Please note that the comparisons presented below correspond to the
    1.1 version of the Tight Encoder and do not reflect major
    enhancements introduced in TightVNC 1.2. Measuring performance and
    providing detailed comparisons is not always straightforward and
    takes time, but at current moment I prefer to concentrate on
    development instead of preparing accurate performance comparisons.
    The only thing I can say for sure is that TightVNC 1.2 significantly
    improves both bandwidth and CPU usage efficiency as compared to older
    versions of VNC Tight Encoder.

With Best Wishes,
