(anonymous) users may check out the trunk (latest development) or branch that was forked of the trunk to prepare for a release, or the same branch after the release for bugfixes.

Typical user workflow

Check out the subversion trunk (possibly unstable, latest development)

The trunk can be checked out as follows:

svn co

A usual mistake is that people often forget the trunk at the end and end up checking out all branches and tags.

Check out a branch

You can also checkout the stable version of octopus. For instance the latest stable version (the 4.1.x series) can be checked out using

svn co
