if I want to regress to the 12/28 nightly, which a lot claim to be the last stable one... how can I get that?

Its so old that its not on the Phoenix site. Some kind people on the forum have mirrored it (including daihard and aroben)

Note - this is the last version to support installing themes and extensions on windows, which is why its popular.

If you use Linux then you may be able to use a more recent build - but I don't know which to recommend.

I've been told that starting with 01/17 (or around there), they broke it worse and on Linux, too.

Flii's right. I'm sure last time I checked that link it was only showing about ten builds...

Oh no. :( I am using the 2003-01-08 Linux nightly, which I believe is about as stable as the 2002-12-28 build. The "themes and extensions" issue isn't present with the Linux version, but the 2003-01-09 build broke the ability to save images by right-clicking them.

I'll give the 2003-01-17 a shot.

[EDIT] I've tried the 2003-01-18 nightly on RH 7.3. Alan is definitely right, it's worse. I now can't install any themes. I can go to the themes page, but then as I click on any theme to install it, Phoenix just quits! I am going back to the 2003-01-08 build...
Kubuntu 8.04 (kernel 2.6.24-25-generic) / KDE 3.5.10
CentOS 4.8 (kernel 2.6.9-78.0.22.ELsmp) / KDE 3.5.10
Mac OS X 10.6.1 (Snow Leopard) / iPhone 3GS (32GB black)

I'm using the 20030116 Linux build, which is late enough that the Save As problem has been fixed but early enough that the crash when installing a theme or extension isn't yet present. 20030115 doesn't save correctly, and 20030117 crashes when installing themes or extensions.

Thanks for the useful info! I've just downloaded it. Shall try it once I'm back from my haircut appointment. :)

[EDIT] I am back... I just started fiddling with 2003-01-16. So far so good. Nothing seems to be broken AFAICT, and the 'save images' bug is indeed fixed. Hooray!

If you are using Windows, you can find the "installer" version here:
