Sure, there's a place where you can add a JTAG connector (5x2 pins) and hook a programmer to it. I did that to update my accelerator. It would require some soldering expertise though.

Looking at the project files, I can see a big update in April 19 and a small bugfix in September 19:

Edit: If your card is older than Sep'19 and you don't mind shipping it to Denmark, I can update it for you. Return shipping should be ~10GBP.

Thanks I might take you up on that.

Are there any online guides for flashing these cards?

Any online guides

I was typing on my phone and it put guys instead of guides..I didn't see it until i logged in just now.

I wondered if i might be able to flash it myself. I wouldn't mind knowing if there was some way to determine what version of the firmware it is currently running.

'guides' makes more sense.
Here's a video of how to program a Xilinx CPLD:
[ Show youtube player ]

Those USB programmers (Platform Cable USB) are somewhat expensive if you only need to use it for a single device. There are also parallel port programmers (Xilinx Parallel Cable IV) but I am not sure if they are much cheaper. There's a schematic of a parallel port programmer in here so you can make one yourself:

This is the file that needs to be programmed:
