• other snapshots older than 7 days are deleted

Snapshots are available at sourceforge

You can go to the latest build subfolder and choose file
emutos-firebee-*-*-*.zip - it will be the latest EmuTOS Firebee build with all possible updates and improvements.

For those who interested a bit more - here is also lots of useful info: At the bottom of the above page, there is a link to Travis CI build history. You can see there the list of last builds, and the time spent to build all the binaries. Currently: between 5 and 6 minutes. For each build, there is a detailed build log when you click on "master" on the left.

Inside the folder of a specific snapshot on SourceForge, there is a description at the bottom. It includes the change log from previous snapshot, as well as useful links to GitHub and Travis CI.
