This is new major release series. The developers strongly recommend copious amounts of testing before putting this code into production use.
The latest code from the 7.0 series gets built and tested on various operating systems whenever changes are committed to the Git repository at https://git.launchpad.net/epics-base. The build status for Unix-like OS builds can be found here and for Microsoft Windows builds can be found here.
Each released version has its own page containing links to its documentation and the relevent files in the software download area. Released versions may have subsequent patch releases, which are documented under the parent version number.

Tarfiles of released versions of Base can be retrieved from the Base Download area.
The source code for all release branches of Base can be obtained using git by cloning the URL https://git.launchpad.net/epics-base but note that from 7.0 we are using git submodules, and the PVA modules will be downloaded (automatically) from GitHub, not Launchpad.
