What is SVN I'm confused - is this just a subversion of a mod? I was reading about v1.13 and it was talking about SVN but I can't figure out what it is exactly. Is there somewhere that I can look up all the abbreviations you guys use?

SVN is a program that the modders use to keep up to date regarding the 1.13 sourcecode. In essence, when they make a change in the game code, they upload it using SVN, and another modder can download the changes easily. Other players like to use it, since they can get access to the newest version of the 1.13 mod. The download version on the main page is a 'stable release' that is several months old. The SVN version is always the newest and up-to-date (and continuously updated), but it may have bugs.

Here is a link on SVN software:

I think it was "Next Generation Attachment Points", although I'm not sure that was exactly it. I'll have a look.
