Each update to the MaNGOS Two sources is run through build tests using the Travis CI build service. The current build status can be viewed on the MaNGOS Two build status page, and for your convenience the build status also is shown at the top of this README when viewing the repository on github. If it's green, a successful build has been performed under Linux.
