  Where can I obtain the most recent version of 4.8? I was looking for this
monthly build the other day on the FTP-site but did not see anything changed
from a version I tested several months ago. That was actually a precompiled
4.8 beta, straight  from one of the developers. Is there a better source for
me out there than the official site?

  I am primarily interested in the new client/server socket setup. I am
having trouble managing multiple local databases along with a couple of
servers. I think that a better solution would be a total client/server
system. But would I be able to set up Windows-clients that access
