Development Versions

In addition to the fully tested releases of EPICS Base listed above, the development versions of EPICS Base are available through the Launchpad website. Use the git distributed version control software to download them.

We cannot guarantee that the latest development version will even compile, let alone run properly. Do not rely on these versions of EPICS Base, although in most cases they should work properly and contain the latest bug fixes that will be found in the next official release. The release process includes running a comprehensive series of test suites, which the development versions have not necessarily been checked with.

Old Regression Test Suites

The EPICS core developers used to use the following regression test suite. The tests were mostly written by Marty Kraimer and were sufficient for our needs at the time, but were rather APS-specific and complicated. These tests have been replaced by a series of self-test programs that are included in Base itself.
