Noob going through metamorphosis...

I am having the hardest time in finding the latest version of Slick2D.  Ever since I discovered the nifty little library, the location of the latest distribution has eluded me.  When downloading from, the distribution number is 274.  There is a readme file that states that it is an outdated version.  I also know that it is outdated because the method Image.createOffscreenImage(int width, int height) does not exist in the version I have currently installed.

So, I find the bitbucket page that should have the latest distribution as specified by  I click on the development button on the drop window.  Problem is, there is not a "get source" button that is shown in the instructions.  I try downloading the other files given, but none of the downloads have the latest distribution.

I hate to ask this seeing as some people might look down on me for not having the basic google skills to find to find it, but I might need someone to point me in the right direction here.   Undecided

The new website is here. It includes a JAR of a recent build.

Bitbucket has changed its website a bit, now to download you need to go to Downloads -> Branches and select the branch you want to download. As explained in the guide, downloading the source is not a good way to keep up with Slick. Instead, you should be using version control through a Mercurial plugin of your choice (i.e. in Eclipse).

Most of this was explained in the global forum announcement.

Also keep in mind that Slick's activity is still very low; if you want a less buggy and more active library you should be looking into LibGDX.
