Development snapshots are available at by anonymous ftp. Development snapshots are typically quite stable, but please be aware that these have seen very little testing. The code you're running may have been written mere hours ago. New snapshots will be made every week.

These files are compressed in bzip2 format (".bz2"), if you don't have the bzip2 uncompression program, get it from the bzip2 home page.

If you have trouble downloading Insight, we have a number of mirror sites from which it should be available--look in the gdb/snapshots directory.

Insight releases typically coincide with GDB releases, so not all Insight releases may contain new features. They may just contain new/improved GDB features.
