..close ;o), I recommend testing them all for bug swatting,
and pick the best one for LinuxTag etc shows.

..again, all versions, I'm on Debian Sid+Experimental and use:
and edit the script to use the newest versions of OSG, my last try
was 2.9.16 which failed, and I'm trying today's OSG-3.0.0~rc3. ;o)
Usually I fall back to a stable release if the latest news fails.
