ifcopenshell appears to provide a library for accessing cad data files.
Blenderbim is a blender addon to provide that file access to blender.

The confusion comes from from them existing in the same github repo even
though they each have their own website. It would appear that blenderbim
tagged releases are updates to the blender addon, not the base library.

And these daily builds are described as "daily developer testing build"
