So everybody is encouraged to download a SVN client (we recommend TortoiseSVN) to get the sources and help in future development of MediaPortal. Of course, you still need Visual Studio 2005 or Visual C# 2005 Express to compile the sources.
Use this URL as SVN repository: https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/mediaportal/trunk/mediaportal
We're looking forward to your plugins and patches! Keep it going! ;-)
Thanks to High you can find the daily snapshots as you've been used to it at "Daily SVN builds".
