SVN

We use SVN as an automatic update mechanism in order to rapidly deliver improvements and fixes to users without the hassle of traditional packaged updates.

The SVN repository is not "unstable" or of lower quality than the .tar.gz releases were, it's just much easier for us to manage and for our users to update. There will be no more .tar.gz releases in future, so you must use SVN. Please check our Using SVN page for more information on howt o use it, and what the possibilities are.
