FAQ:Which version of MakeHuman should I download?
There are two different versions of MakeHuman, and it can be confusing for new users to understand which is stable and/or current. The available versions are:
- MakeHuman releases (currently 1.0.x): These are formal releases from the stable branch of makehuman. They are updated seldomly and are well tested.
- MakeHuman nightly builds (currently what is to become 1.1.x): These are builds of the unstable branch and are updated nightly. They do thus contain all the latest changes. Note that late in the development cycle, the term "unstable" is something of a misnomer as it is then often at least as stable as the last release.
Early on after a release we recommend that you download and use a formal release.
If you need the new features and/or some time have passed (several months) since the last release, we recommend that you download the nightly build.
If you find and report a bug in the stable release, you will more often than not be directed to try the nightly build instead.
