We do not make snapshots available.  Rather, that link points to the current
*release*, which at the moment is 1.1.  You can see this by fetching the
Change Log link, though I can see how this is all confusing.  We'll aim
to clarify the release numbering on that page soon.

We've been doing roughly 6-9 months between public releases.  (Again, these
are not snapshots.)  We're aiming for the 1.2 release around October.

Per the above, we don't make the SVN repository publicly accessible.  We
may consider changing this in the future if we get enough requests.
