If it's convenient for you to pull from CVS, by all means do that.
Another option is to grab the nightly CVS-snapshot tarball from our ftp
servers (look in the dev/ directory).

If we were not in beta phase, I'd not necessarily recommend using CVS
;-) but since we are, CVS tip should theoretically be as or more stable
than the last beta.
