Oh, yes, I see that 2.4.2 is the current stable version.

I'm not sure how many users this would affect, but there were a number
of improvements to the export in MEDIT .mesh format that occurred
after 2.4.2 was released.  That's one of my main export formats, since
it's what FreeFem++ reads.

think only once did I find that the sources after an "svn update" were
not compilable, but that was fixed by the following day, and of course
since I only "make install" after successful compilation, I always had
a working installation of Gmsh on my system.

I have to leave this question for others, I'm not involved with the
code development.
