Get Better Code with Subversion
SourceForge offers us the latest code versions with the Subversion (svn) tool. The command is, if you know how it works:
svn co https://rgbtrade.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/rgbtrade rgbtrade
It is updated on a day-to-day basis, and once you have it going, updates with a single command. It won’t overwirte your current configuration files.
