Development version

A development version is the latest package we are currently working on, also referred to as the Git master branch. It will have new features and bugfixes included (see demo site), but it might not be as stable as an official release. Experienced Kimai users can help us to test, by installing the development version and leaving feedback if you encounter any problems.
