+== Download
+
+Unless you are developing on TortoiseHg, we recommend you use a binary
+[[http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=199155|installer]].
+Released versions are always available from SourceForge.  Periodic
+[[http://code.google.com/p/tortoisehg-nightly/|unstable]] builds are also available.
+
+If you are not using Windows, the recommended methods for using TortoiseHg are
+[[hgtk]] and [[nautilus]].  Both work by cloning the source repository and directly
+running the software out of that clone.
+
