Option 2. Download Alpha, Beta and RC Releases

These are development milestone releases designed to display the work in progress on PCGen and for use in testing new features. Use at own risk. Basic functionality is tested before each alpha and beta build though.

Option 3. Nightly Builds

Autobuilds are compilations of the PCGen program and data taken direct from our source at regular intervals. They are not manually tested at all prior to upload, but are instead an excellent tool to allow people to test what we are currently working on.

See the Autobuilds page for these downloads.

Option 4. Subversion Access

We use the Subversion service hosted by SourceForge for all our code and data. If you want direct access to the source, see the Subversion usage page
