Re: Where/how to download the latest bleeding edge beta?

I had been doing SVN checkouts (i.e. svn co) from the command line in Mac OS X… but I still had to install a subversion binary before I could do that… or compile one from source. And even with a GUI SVN client you may still need to do that. Not impossible for a newbie with a bit of help from Google… but not necessarily a fun way to spend an afternoon either. LOL.

Then I discovered that I could simply use a plain old GUI FTP client and point it to using the “WebDav” protocol! Very simple. I can download the trunk just with drag and drop. And to see what revision number we’re on… I just point my web browser to the same URL. By the way, I’m using Panic’s “Transmit” FTP client on the Mac.
