The Alan development is progressing. Modern software development techniques are slowly seeping into practice. One such technique that has recently been put into practice is Continuous Integration. This means that there is a server that build the whole Alan system and then runs a lot of tests as soon as somebody commits some changes to the source code repository. If that build and the tests was successful, the resulting development snapshots are automatically uploaded to the Alan website, where you can download them from the box on the right hand side of this page or from the Snapshots section of the Download Area.
You can see the current status of our Hudson build server (if that server is currently up and running...). If your interested in our planning, surf to our planning board at Pivotal Tracker.
