Use git to follow the latest changes or view them on this webpage. This command checks out the 'next' branch:

$ git clone https://github.com/i5/i5

The 'master' branch is the current stable version plus bugfixes. The 'next' branch is the next version, yet to be released. Use git checkout master to switch to the 'master' branch.
