Checkout the latest sources from our Git Repository:
git clone
This checksout the latest code into a branch called “master” similar to trunk in svn.

In case you want to change to  a different branch e.g. stable-0.5.1.

git checkout stable-0.5.1


git checkout -b stable-0.5.1 origin/stable-0.5.1

See the git documentation for details.

We use apache ant 1.6 as build tool.

To build a Katta distribution just go to the top level directory of your svn checkout and type:
ant dist
You will find the distribution compressed and uncompressed under build/katta-core-VERSION.tar.gz
