At least, please make a distinctly notice on your website with a link to this forum.What's wrong with the link on the first page on codeblocks.org (see image attached)?!
Not everybody knows what a nightly is, specially when they are beginning programming, and SVN is a more advanced concept that you don't know when starting.
A few years ago, I thought that CB was death because I didn't know what a nightly is (english is not my mother language, so you understand that it's difficult for me to tell the meaning of everything. There are so many expressions, nightly what? And I had to come to the forum to know what it is).
The trick for popularity is to have everything acessible and simple. Code::Blocks seems dead for people like I was a few years ago.
But I don't know if you want popularity. I think it is never bad, because you bring more people from the VS side to this side, and documentation, development and popularity of CB gets better.
