Because we are sometimes pushing the boundaries of Sphinx, you’ll need to get the very latest development version (a.k.a. the “tip”).
Avoid installing the tortoiseHG part - it has caused trouble w/ Python debuggers.
To get the Sphinx trunk, start with:
$ hg clone http://www.bitbucket.org/birkenfeld/sphinx/
and to update, use:
$ hg pull
Once you update, run
$ python setup.py install
(You can repeat this step whenever you need to update).
We may talk about minimum version numbers to process the book. Check your version with:
$ hg identify -n
