    I know that 1.3.0 Alpha has just been released (and it seems to be a doozy :D), but didn't I read somewhere that we'd be going back to releasing the SVN type builds once we'd moved to the GitHub?
    Is this still the plan or are we going with full builds?

    Also - if the development is in GitHub, how come the download for 1.3.0 Alpha was on SourceForge?

    Not moaning, just curious...

    I think that is going on in Area51.

    We cannot build SVN builds when we have already moved to GIT :p

    Not sure what Git calls what would have been SVN builds - early test builds is what I mean, like back in the old days :)
    As above though, if we've gone GIt why is the 1.3.0 Alpha build dl on sourceforge?

    we use Github for development but still Sourceforge for releases. Both have their pro's and con's and so we use best of both worlds ;)

    svn (subversion)-builds would be git builds now but due to our changed way of development it wouldn't be of much use to throw them out automatically. Features/Bugs are handled in branches now which means there is not one svn-repository anymore but many different ones and just before releasing those are merged into a master-branch. This allows to develop independently on features without breaking anything or holding back a release.
    Area51 contains those compiled branches if the coder(s) think(s) they are worth testing.

    We aren't completely ignoring a possibility for having some GIT based test builds (well, whole Area 51 is based on such but on feature basis). It could be possible that in some day Area 51 could see some test build based directly on the master branch in the GIT. 1.3.0 didn't see any of those as all features were completed so late in the development cycle, but it could happen that some future version has x number of features ready in the beginning of the development cycle and then it could be a good idea to release such test build.

    Whilst roaming round Area 51 I noticed that there are some interesting bits and wondered if they would ever roll in to "Git Builds", that was the main prompt for the post.
    It looks like this may indeed be a possibility - and one I shall look forward to :)

    Thanks for the clarification of the SF download too!
