Starting from FDS Version 5, the official versions are the same as the FDS versions available from the FDS-SMV site. You should have downloaded and installed the latest version of FDS before you start using FDS+Evac. Check that your your executable and the FDS+Evac guide have same FDS and Evac version numbers. Check also the FDS+Evac README file for the latest changes to the program code and user input. The latest version number of the evacuation module is "Evac 2.2.1" and it is embedded in FDS versions 5.5.0 onwards.
Beta versions have updates in the evacuation part that have not yet been implemented in the official versions. The users should notice that the beta versions are under development, and the features and user input may change in the future. For now, there are no beta test versions available. All the features of the evacuation module are embedded in the latest FDS version. The source code of FDS (and FDS+Evac) is open source and it can be found at FDS-SMV Project page hosted by Google Code.
