The latest development version of SDL is available via Mercurial. Mercurial allows you to get up-to-the-minute fixes and enhancements; as a developer works on a source tree, you can use “hg” to mirror that source tree instead of waiting for an official release. Please look at the Mercurial website ( ) for more information on using hg, where you can also download software for Mac OS X, Windows, and Unix systems.

hg clone

If you are building SDL with an IDE, you will need to copy the file include/SDL_config.h.default to include/SDL_config.h before building.

If you are building SDL via configure, you will need to run before running configure.

There is an RSS feed available at that URL, for those that want to track commits in real time.
