Quick tip: up-to-date Blender builds

Just a little heads-up for something that seems not to be known too well... If you find yourself looking for the newest Blender builds (because some totally cool new feature got added), just head over to builder.blender.org. It's an automatic build service that compiles the current SVN on a regular basis. So you don't have to wait until someone uploads his/her build to graphicall.org, just get them from the Buildbot. They come in all flavors - Linux, OSX, Windows, 32bit, 64bit.
So if you aren't looking for a build of a specific Blender branch but just the trunk version, this makes it easy. For everything else, you can still resort to www.graphicall.org.

Cheers!
