Bleeding-edge clients are Istaria clients that are in the process of being tested for formal release. The behavior and stability of these clients is NOT assured and is not supported by anyone at Bristugo.com or Virtrium. These clients may crash a lot, corrupt your prefrences, corrupt your world cache, or even run amok on your hard disk, replacing every piece of homework with pictures of dragons. (Okay, well, the latter is HIGHLY unlikely.)
If you're interested in helping test new clients or want to see if one of "your" problems has been fixed in a possible upcoming release, these are the clients to try.
If you're the "I just want it to work" type of person, or if you don't feel comfortable with the "installation" instructions, maybe it's best to sit back and wait for an official release.
383.12 Released! Thank you for testing!
383.21 Released! Thank you for testing!
384.4 Tested a lot more internally this time...(development)
383.38 New! (Release to Blight pending)

Summer Properties - use to calculate MD5 hashes if you have no way to do so.
383.12 (no longer needed)
Installing merely requires overwriting your existing istaria.exe file.
1) Download the client .zip file
2) Log in using the official release client, make sure a full scan does not happen.
3) Log out.
4) Find the directory containing the official release istaria.exe
5) Extract the istaria.exe from the zip file and overwrite the istaria.exe found in step 4
6) Log back in.
Note: Switching between live and Blight will trigger a full scan.
Note 2: A full scan will restore your client to the official release.
Log in and open the fpswindow by typing the command
The client build number will be shown in red text in the fpswindow.
Aside from use in normal play, a number of regression tests will be posted here as they are created. These tests are to make sure "everything still works" in a new build.
