LiteStep Development
While LiteStep is an Open Source project, there is a central group of programmers called the Development Team who are continually improving and streamlining the code, as well as adding new features. Occasionally this code will be released as a Development Build. Development Builds are updated and temporary distributions of LiteStep and its core modules. These builds are considered to be unstable and are intended for advanced users only.

Development Builds are important for the Development Team to locate and repair any bugs or problems that may arise as new features are added. Irregularities in the release schedule of Dev Builds are natural and to be expected, as the Development Team are all volunteers donating their free time. History has shown that the speed of LiteStep development fluctuates over time. Just because development is slow at any particular time does not mean LiteStep is dead, as oft-proclaimed.

If you decide to use a Development Build, make sure you back up your currently working configuration, as it is a very real possibility that the new build will not work. If you have problems with a Development Build, send an e-mail to the Dev Team at, with the following details: build number, operating system and a list of the modules you are using.
