Development releases are always tested and therefore reasonnably safe to use. They happen irregularly, with an average of 2 weeks between updates.

# for Retroshare releases only
   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:retroshare/stable
# for Retroshare development snapshots
   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:retroshare/unstable
# then
   sudo apt-get update
   sudo apt-get install retroshare06
