Development versions

SRB development versions are created when OOo Base bug fixes impact the SRB code.

The SRB file name usually contains the development version number.

Unless there is a change in SRB code, no new version generates. The latest version of SRB can continue to be used with OOo until a newer SRB version is generated - a new version being automatically triggered by impacting changes within OOo.

The SRB development versions are located at ftp://qa-upload.services.openoffice.org/SRB/.
