CVS Snapshots

The above examples packages are maintained in the EPICS CVS repository at APS. In addition to the point releases above, you can also download the latest version of the source that has been committed to CVS. The following gzipped tar files are created shortly after midnight Chicago (Central US) time whenever any change has been committed to the CVS repository, thus they should never be more than 24 hours behind the latest development version of the extension concerned. If a creation date is several days or even weeks old, that means that nothing has been checked into that CVS branch between that date and midnight in Chicago last night.

There is no guarantee that any particular CVS snapshot will even compile, let alone run properly. Do not rely on these extension versions, although in many cases they should work properly and may contain the latest bug fixes that will be found in the next official release.
