Tools

SVN

Wesnoth development currently uses the Subversion software tool to keep developers in sync with each other. See the SVN book for more on how to use Subversion.


Browse the code

There are currently two main streams of development: trunk (1.3.x) and branch (1.2.x). Most other branches are only used for a short time to do some testing without disturbing the main development. You can use your web browser to navigate through the source code:

http://svn.gna.org/viewcvs/wesnoth/

Download

To check out trunk into a directory wesnoth (About 250 MB to download and 700 MB disk-space (including .svn dirs) required, in October 2007):

svn co http://svn.gna.org/svn/wesnoth/trunk wesnoth

or to check out the 1.2 branch (About 329 MB at august 2007) into a directory wesnoth-1.2:

svn co http://svn.gna.org/svn/wesnoth/branches/1.2 wesnoth-1.2

More info on the repository: https://gna.org/svn/?group=wesnoth

Update

Do this from inside the wesnoth or wesnoth-1.2 directory where you checked out the repository:

svn update

Note that when you update from Subversion, you should always run 'autogen.sh' if configure.ac or any of the Makefile.am files were changed. It is safest to 'make clean' before updating, then update and finally run 'autogen.sh', 'configure' and 'make'.

You may be able to skip the 'autogen.sh' and the 'make clean' if the makefiles and configure.ac have not changed. If only minor changes were made then even the 'configure' step is optional.
