CI builds

In addition to the stable builds continious integration system automatically publishes prebuilt artifacts on each push to the main repository.

These builds can be useful for testing unreleased changes, but are not intended for daily use, and are likely to crash more often than stable releases.

To download a build artifact in the CI build history choose a change you want to test, then pick a build job corresponding the target platform, and finally download archive from the Artifacts tab.
