The FlightGear developers generally release a stable packaged version of FlightGear, with an easy install wizard, about once or twice a year. For convenience, most FlightGear users download and install these packages.

However, the source files used to build the whole FlightGear package are continuously being developed by dozens of contributors, who colaborate using CVS to create a new "unstable" version every few days. If you want to use one of these unstable versions, or tinker with the source files to create your own custom version, the pages below describe how to compile the FlightGear package from the CVS source files.
