There's still an old direct-download server dating back to the days when we sold the game via our website. You can't buy access to that distro anymore, but, long-time users (like Chasm) still have a copy. These days, we use it for testing bleeding-edge features -- thus, I've started calling it the 'dev server'. If you're a Steam user, you can get access to the same content by using the password 'alphatesting' in the BETA opt-in menu (under game properties).
