Version 3.0.4 was released last December (12/9/2010). This
is the current Stable release. Note that this announcement is
"after the fact" and you may already have this version.

major versions (2.8, 2.9.x, 3.0.x) installed on the same machine.

installing V3.0, you may uninstall Version 2.9.... read more

Notice : Bug Reports

The Bug Tracker contain many old reports from older versions of Gravity. These may or may not still be present in the latest version and I need your help in finding this out.

If you have submitted a bug report that is still there, can you please try to reproduce it using the current release (2.71.7 or later). If you can reproduce it please add a follow up to the bug report saying so.

On 14/2/2009 I will go through all the Bug reports and those that do not have a follow up (saying they are reproducible in the current version) will be closed.
