Downloads and Versioning.
You can view Fieldmanager's official releases here.
master branch on GitHub is the "bleeding edge" release. As of 1.0, Fieldmanager will maintain a typical release cycle, with alpha, beta, and RC releases, and we hope to move through "minor" versions pretty quickly. While we encourage everyone to develop with and test on early releases and help us find the bugs, stable releases are recommended for production.

Development of Fieldmanager happens on Github. Bugs with Fieldmanager should be addressed in the Github issue queue, and enhancements or bug fixes should be submitted as pull requests, which are always welcome.
