11 I think those are called the live builds. Basically, they are not
12 tested much and are really close to falling off the bleeding edge. I
13 rarely mess with those. There is a google-talkplugin- that is
14 not live but keyworded. If it was me, I would at least try that version
15 first. It is likely tested a bit more, not going to change so often and
16 be stable as it gets in the unstable branch of the tree. If that fails,
17 go back to the older version. If neither works, then I would try to
18 9999 build. I'd also cross my fingers for good measure.
