need to build the current release, not the current in development

Hi. I was able to compile and make the change I wanted to the code and I am very happey. Then I realized that I intend to use it for projects, which means I don’t want the current build, I want to tweak a stable release.
How do I find that? (that would currently be 2.74a)
These commands I used retrieve the most recent source:
cd C:\BlenderDEV
git clone git://
cd blender
git submodule update --init --recursive
git submodule foreach git checkout master
git submodule foreach git pull --rebase origin master
What do I change to get the files I want?

I was also going to ask about what to do with the old code but I figure I should do some reading instead. Where is a good place to start on this particular subject?

Not sure but, I thought releases were placed in their own branch for a very short period thereafter, then the branch is removed and the only thing remaining is some kind of tag. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Hi, you can use the “checkout” command to checkout a branch or a tag.
“git tag” listed all tags “git checkout tag” set code to the status where you like.

Cheers, mib
