What is the difference between official releases and SVN builds?

SVN builds are “bleeding edge” which means they contain the latest features, updates, and - unfortunately - bugs. They are usually released a few times per week. Official releases are - simply put - “based” on these SVN builds. When an acceptable feature and stability level is reached during development, one SVN version is “destined” to become the next official release. Its development continues on another branch independently from the current SVN trunk. Adding new features is stopped (so called feature freeze) and fixing bugs becomes the priority. If, after an extensive bugfixing and testing period, no serious issues occur (known as “show stoppers”), then this version gets declared as stable and released to the public.
