The development versions

SPIP is developed using GIT. There are several branches that correspond to the currently maintained versions of SPIP:

  • Branches which are "stable" for versions 3.1 and 3.2, which are only further updated to correct bugs and occasionally to include minor improvements.
  • A development branch which may at any time be updated to correct a recently discovered bug, and which risks being completely unusable if significant new functions have been added or are being modified.

The development branch is also provided as a ZIP file here:

The SPIP development project has its own web site:
