well the sourceforge link in the first post isnt working anymore, or well its working but the files are gone so if someone could make them avaible again and a " rerelease " of the 0.2.9 version would be great.

Well, I'm not sure if the admins will allow it, so I won't post exact linkage, but Sourceforge archives all downloads for every project, so it's just a matter of finding the archive :)

I don't think the developers can modify the archive. It automatically archives every file ever posted on Sourceforge.

Well... As I know, ROS is still very alpha. ;) No betas yet... But it's coming along nice.

@people deeply involved with ROS: I' ve been following you since 0.2.5... Can't wait to get my hands on 0.2.9/0.3... I have slow modem connection and won't risk to download 0.2.9 if I don't get it another way... So I'm waiting for 0.3. Currently testing 0.2.8. I see a lot of improvements in ROS between versions I tested, and I just want to wish you the best of lucks in future development and hope to contribute to project in future (currently I don't have much spare time) even if that means only working on docs or wiki...

0.2.8 to 0.3 will be a great improvement!

First I would like to welcome you to the ReactOS forum.
I know you will love what has happened since 0.2.8! Get an ADSL internet connection and start to try it's improvements every week! Or get a USB-drive and download it at a friends house to take down to your own computer to try it out.

Currently can't do that. But I'll find another way if you say it's worth of it. ;) I will be glad to test out the latest development versions if I find a way to download them at least at weekly terms. Downloading 0.2.9 is already on my "to do" list (thanks to your recommendation), so I'll start testing it pretty soon.

Another option, what i used to do when i were on a dialup connection is to use a download manager and just download a little bit each time your online. the nightly builds won't work this way but the official releases will.

Thank you guys for your suggestions. But I found out there is an internet caffe in my city that offers burning downloaded data to CD or DVD. It is more expensive than using my own dialup connnection for that, but it's hassle free and fast. I think I'll just test them out one of these days.

BTW, that would also be a good chance for me to get the source for at least 0.2.9. I have a knowledge of C, but I'm weak on Win API. Maybe, I could look at ROS Apps source to get a bit more knowledge of that.

I would recommend you to download trunkXXXX.rar from http://svn.reactos.org/. That is a weekly snapshot of the svn source. But of cause you can't be sure that it is building and bug free.
Where do you want ReactOS to go today ?

What's the status on the revision builds? I remember reading that it was (at least temporarily) no longer possible, since the SVN box switched from a Windows box to a Linux box. Do the devs plan on eventually restoring it?
