Thanks. That was it.

Is there a list of what is new on these snapshots?

What, if anything, can one do to help test these snapshots?
I guess as I write some programs I could build them with the snapshot and 
report back in case of problems. Right now I am still just reading, testing 
libraries and writing what amount to trivial/exercise programs.
