Default hg18 or hg19

Does anybody know the difference between the following files for Bowtie?
File: (27-08-09) and
File: (18-02-09)
Files found from:

Is it a difference in the genomes or something else?
I want to be using hg18 version of the genome

If you look at the 'pre-built indexes' panel on the right of that page you can see what the different files are.

The h_sapiens_37 comes from the new GRCh37 assembly from earlier this year. The h_sapiens_asm is the older NCBI36 assembly, which would correspond to hg18.
