It seems that extension is still in Beta stage. Have you tried changing your Magento Connect Manager’s preference to “Beta”?

You can do so with the following steps:-

In Magento Connect Manager, go to Settings --> Preferred State: --> Beta

No problem. I am glad that your issue is now solved. wink
Be sure to change it back to “Stable” after you have downloaded/installed the extension.

You could have also just used this as your extension key:
magento-community/Fooman_Speedster-0.7.15

And it would install the version without having to change the Beta/Stable settings. In general just add whatever is mentioned as the latest release to the key you have copied from Magento Connect.

ps the stable release should be coming up very soon
