Code Repository Usage

Git is the tool we use for storing our source code in a central location. This system allows everyone to have their own copy of the source code. You can read more about Git at Wikipedia.

If you just wish to take a quick look at the the code, you may use the web-based interface.

Development branches

FreeCol no longer normally uses a trunk branch.

We are sometimes developing two versions of FreeCol at the same time: the main/trunk version and a stable branch. The former will be released as FreeCol x.0 and will probably be buggy for some time, while the latter is used for creating stable releases. Usually though only the trunk is being worked on.

Download and Build

There are several ways to download a git repository for FreeCol available here. In order to compile the game you will need a Java Virtual Machine version 1.8 or higher and a recent version of Ant.
