Obtaining it

Some of the current LaTeX3 development code is held under version control in a SVN repository and can be accessed publicly via a web interface, where it can be downloaded as single files. However, you might prefer to get hold of the files via anonymous SVN access in which case you can get a working copy from the repository at https://latex-project.org/svnroot/experimental/trunk/ using a Subversion client.

The RSS feed for commits to the SVN repository is here. Active contributors may wish to receive diffs of each commit via email for discussion on LATEX-L; please send us an email to be added to the list.

Please remember that this material is intended only for experimentation and comments; thus any aspect of it, e.g., the user interface or the functionality, may change and, in fact, is very likely to change. For this reason it is explicitly forbidden to place this material on CD-ROM distributions or public servers.
