Download the source of a build number at the [downloads page](http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=40163). ¶


### Subversion (SVN)


If you plan to join development or are just interested in the latest inventions ¶
you should go for this. You __need to have__ SVN with SSL installed, to check-out the trunk. Type in the ¶
console: ¶

svn co https://widelands.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/widelands/trunk widelands ¶

If (it might not) SVN asks you if it should accept the certificate of our SVN server, say (p)ermanently. ¶

After downloading the source, you might want to check BuildingWidelands for a !HowTo on building. ¶
