The devs for myth have decided for better or worse that "releases" are 
static snapshots taken on release day which is standard stuff but 
instead of releasing a new higher version for each minor bug fix they 
decided to make a -fixes branch in SVN which contains the release code 
plus any bug fixes to the trunk SVN branch that also apply to the 
release code. So feel free to compile the fixes branch knowing that you 
are getting the best of both worlds.
