+ <dt>Release Updates</dt>
+ If you are experiencing problems with a release
+ (e.g. broken download links), try the
+ <a href="#development">stable development branch.</a>
<h2 id="development">Development Version</h2>
+ For the sake of simplicity, there are two development
+ branches - "default" and "stable". Although it might
+ seem obvious, here's an overview of the types of
+ changes that go into each branch:
+ <ul class="compact-list">
+ Any change in the build scripts goes into "default".
+ Any package upgrade goes into "default".
+ Any documentation upgrade that refers to a feature
+ not present in stable goes into "default".
+ Anything else that doesn't effect the build goes
+ Any non-critical improvement to the main Makefile
+ Any improvement in the package download URLs or
+ package version recognition goes into "stable".
+ When in doubt, use "default" rather than "stable".
+ After a successful testing phase, the whole "default"
+ branch will be merged (moved) into "stable".
To obtain the current development version,
<pre>hg clone http://hg.savannah.nongnu.org/hgweb/mingw-cross-env</pre>
+ The stable version can be obtained by:
+ <pre>hg clone -b stable \
