So, being a user and not having insight into development, I have a question regarding the different builds on AppVeyor. From what I get the latest build is always this one: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/rpcs3/rp.../artifacts

Now on Appveyor under history there will always be builds which were compiled later. So what exactly is the difference then? Do these builds which were compiled later not incorporate the changes from the builds which were compiled earlier? What build are they based on then? On whatever the person was using when throwing his changes at appveyor?

It's a bit confusing.

AppVeyor compiles from all pull requests at any time it's triggered. Anyone can open a pull request and trigger a build.
Pull request builds don't contain changes from other pull requests, and may even not be up-to-date with master as they're WIP until they're merged.

That link will lead you to the latest master build, although it may not update properly sometimes and not show the latest one.
See https://rpcs3.net/compatibility?b for a list of older builds and if you want to test a certain unmerged PR then go to the build by the Pull Request page (on Details at the end) and not via AppVeyor.

Which link?

Is it here? https://ci.appveyor.com/project/rpcs3/rp.../artifacts

Build with all the latest approved changes?
