stwbeast is a git repository containing not yet merged fixes and enhancements for the official beast git repository. It's my private repository I use to store proposals of how beast development should proceed. Often the proposals take the form of branches implementing a single fix or new idea. This page keeps track of these branches, their function and their merge status. This repo is not meant for daily musicians use, but for development proposals only

The git repository can be cloned like this:

git clone

and browsed via gitweb
