Source code for current development version now available in the 'Code' menu. The development version currently has a couple of bug fixes + the SSL protocol can now be selected (rather than using Qt's default). Also will shortly be adding changes to allow Quban to build against either Qt4 or Qt5 (thanks to Doug Miller for the help).
