You can install WDB by compiling its source code release directly, or by installing the prepackaged binaries (if there is one for your operating system). WDB is currently in development toward 1.0; as a result, there is no attempt to keep successive updates compatible. To upgrade, one must uninstall the old version and install the new version. We do not intend to focus on maintaining compatibility across versions until we release version 1.0.
The latest source code release is available in the (download directory).
