nightly builds available

It will take some time until we release a new version. If you can't wait :) you can download the nightly builds (checked out of the CVS and compiled daily at 0:00 UCT). They include bug-fixes and new features, but maybe also introduce new bugs - it's also possible that they don't run at all...
