    29 <li>2009-07-16: We moved our CVS-Repository to Subversion and adjusted the <a href="http://sourceforge.net/wiki/Download#InstalllatestunreleasedcodefromSVNrepository">download instructions</a> accordingly. If built from trunk, the first line of smartmontools output now reports the SVN revision date and number, e.g: <tt>smartctl 5.39 2009-07-16 r2838 [i686-pc-linux-gnu] (local build)</tt>. So if you send smartctl output, we can now identify the exact revision :-)<br /><br /></li>
