Latin vowel quantity & Radio

Hello, I'm just restarting my D'OOGE, and I just find today that for some words the textbooks and ref books give different vowel quantities.
For ex, while D'Ooge and Wheelock give "leegaatus"(I will use doubled letter to indicate a long vowel), the Vocabulaire essentiel de latin (of G. Cauquil and J.-Y.

Je viens d'obtenir dix-sept ans

Today is my birthday. Sweet seventeen. Not quite eighteen.

EDIT : This is also my 200th post, making me a Textkit Fan rather than a mere Textkit member.
