No

I just wanted to check the rev-number that matches to 2.13.20 but recognized, that there have been no tags since months.
Would it be possible to tag svn-builds, too?

    These kind of things would be more proper for discussion forum(s) as they are not really requests for new WinMerge features but discussion for improving our practices... Creating feature request ticket is sure way to ensure things get buried into noise and forgotten...

    Experimental/Alpha releases were more like throw-away test builds we just started to release. I doubt nobody really has interest to go back in history to get code for some older release. So tags are pretty useless (noise) in SVN.

    Come on, tags are quite useful. If not for check out at least for diffs. If one recognizes a bug was introduced in version x.y.z one can simply have a look at the differences between version x.y.z-1 and x.y.z,
