===== Bleeding Edge ===== ===== Bleeding Edge =====
-The **trunk**, currently named &quot;Barrier Breaker", is where the current coding happens. The development branch contains everything from documentation to <color yellow>**//experimental//**</color> <color red>**//patches//**</color>! It supports more hardware but also bugs and sometimes doesn't even compile. It can be built from sources:+The development branch (trunk), code named **Chaos Calmer**, contains bleeding edge source code for OpenWrt.  
 + 
 +|{{:meta:icons:tango:48px-dialog-warning.svg.png?nolink&amp;24}}| The development branch can contain experimental code that is under active development and should not be used for production environments. Bleeding edge OpenWrt supports additional hardware; however, it's considered unstable, and sometimes won't compile.

 +Bleeding edge can be built from sources:

-Or some limited snapshots are available, though it's highly advisable that you **check the dates on the files** before downloading them:+Alternatively, pre-built snapshots are available. The so-called buildbots are automated machines that run build scripts around the clock to keep recent snapshots available for install. 
 +|{{:meta:icons:tango:48px-dialog-warning.svg.png?nolink&24}}| **Prebuilt trunk images do not come with any web interface or GUI**. You will need to be comfortable using a command line and remote shell to install one yourself: [[doc:howto:luci.essentials|LuCI Essentials]]  | 
 +The bots build for most specific build targets (i.e. devices). For more information about the automated build process, see the buildbot page http://buildbot.openwrt.org:8010/. The builds are available in the snapshot directory of the OpenWrt download page:
  * [[http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/|Snapshot Images]]   * [[http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/|Snapshot Images]]
 +
 +While the build process is automated and is mostly functioning, it's highly advisable that you **check the dates on the files** before downloading them to prevent installing an outdated version.
 +
 +If opkg is complaining that the packages list is too old, it is possible that the last few buildbot runs have failed for your platform and the packages are already a few days old.
 +
 +Buildbot also reports which packages fail to build, so that developers get feedback on possible errors. So when wondering why a package is not currently available in trunk, you could also check the "broken packages" list for your platform.
 +[[http://buildbot.openwrt.org:8010/broken_packages/]]
