    The 'always stable' 2.4 version Link to this post

    Hi

    This is probably a very stupid question, but just to be very very sure:

    On SVN, is it correct that http://svn.silverstripe.com/open/phpinstaller/branches/2.4/ gives you the absolute newest stable SilverStripe 2.4x version (so that it now represents 2.4.5)? Or am I horribly mistaken?

    We will no longer be releasing updates to svn. SilverStripe development has been moved to github - https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-installer/tree/2.4

    Due to the large amount of projects still on svn if there is a major security issue I guess the svn branch location could be reopened and the patch deployed but the github should be the latest.

    Thanks Sam,

    Just so I get this right, since I'm new to GitHub and at the moment I just don't have the time to delve into this, but I do so want to keep my code secure:

    The download button - will it give me the latest version? And does that include the bugfixes mentioned?

    After that, do I have to keep track of new fixes 'by hand' and check this page every day or is there som svn-like method to pull updates to some sort of local repository? I promise I'll find out all about it myself as soon as the current deadline are cleared, but pff...

    For 2.4 yes that page will have the latest. If you want the latest latest developer preview then use the 'master' branch. You can switch branches in Github under the dropdown on the left (eg to get the latest 2.3, 2.4).

    Of course though we are recommending you use Piston (http://piston.rubyforge.org/) to manage your modules. See Ingo's new documentation for how to install the source with http://doc.silverstripe.org/sapphire/en/installation/from-source

    Thanks again Willr (and not Sam, my error, sorry)

    Has anyone experience with (how to install) Piston on Debian, or know of an easy-to-use alternative? Or is it to be git..?

    Just when I thought I had it all covered

    Well piston needs ruby and you should be able to install ruby sudo apt-get ruby. Then install piston gem install piston and you should be good to go, you'll also need git (which should be built in)

    Git isn't installed by default on Debian. Easily installed, though:

    Debian lenny: apt-get install git-core
    Debian squeeze: apt-get install git
