Glider pretty much covered everything, but just wanted to clarify some things. 2.72 is mainly a bug fix release, and is save game compatible with 2.7; the current build, 2.8, on the SVN is not save game compatible. We mainly just wanted to release 2.72 as there were a few issues, such as BUG options not responding correctly, that had been fixed and kept save game compatibility. Version 2.8 is probably a long ways off, so if you're waiting for it, be prepared to wait a while, a couple of months is my best guess at this time; who knows though, things may change quite a bit. Also BBAI wasn't included because jdog wants to significantly tweak some AI behavior so the AI was more "aware" of revolutions and minor civs, and we just didn't want to delay the 2.72 build for that, as he doesn't know how long that'll take. So my advice would be not to wait for 2.8 if you have a mod that uses a RevDCM core; if you don't care about save game compatibility you may consider using the SVN, but I'd look at the TODO list and SVN changelog just to make sure the SVN is working right and has been updated (for instance right now the RevMP code hasn't been ported from 2.72 into 2.8 yet, that might take a couple days). And again, we have no idea when 2.8 will be released, but it's wise to assume it will take a while.
