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.
