Development Builds

Users are encouraged to use releases or milestones wherever possible. But if a more recent development build is required, for example to test a bug fix, then one of the zip files produced by the Hudson packaging job may be downloaded.

Caveats:

  • Note that development builds may be less stable than official releases or milestones. For example, the code may be in the middle of a major refactoring.
  • If the Hudson packaging job fails, development builds may be unavailable. Also, existing development builds may be deleted at any time without notice.
  • Users should never raise bugs found when using these builds, but should re-test on a milestone.
  • Obviously these builds must never be used in production.
