If you don't see a build for your operating system, keep checking back, we are adding them as fast as possible. Note that if you are running Linux and don't want to wait a few days for your distribution to catch up, you can try the build instructions.

You can install Hedgewars by compiling its source code release directly, or you can install one of the prepackaged binaries if there is one for your operating system. Unless a release has "alpha", "beta", or "rc" in its name, it is tested and considered stable for use. To upgrade to the latest release, either uninstall your old version first or just install the new version "on top of" an older release.
