/snapshot/linux contains snapshots of the 1.1 development version. This version contains
new features and is not always release quality.

v10/linux contains the 1.0.5 development version. This is the stable branch of the
compiler, most of the time it is release quality.

So if you want to expiriment with new features (like interfaces) you should take the 1.1

If you want a stable compiler including all the latest bugfixes you need to take the 1.0.5
