Stable releases

The source zip will unpack into a directory named after its version, so multiple versions can easily be installed side by side in the same directory.

Note: The Core binary distribution comes without the dependencies bundled. Users should use the dependency management provided by their preferred network-enabled build tool - such as Maven, Ivy or Gradle. Alternatively, an Ant script is provided in lib/ directory to download all the dependencies in one go from the POM. Read DEPENDENCIES.txt file for instructions.


What do the release categories mean?

  • Stable: the recommended 3.x release, stable and feature complete.
  • Preview: a beta release towards a stable 4.x release. It is considered stable enough to be used but not all features may have been completed.
  • Latest: the latest snapshot.


Note: the download links will redirect to the latest release version for each category. Once the link is clicked the version will be shown on the artifact being downloaded.

Core bin | src bin | src
Web bin | src bin | src

Alternatively, users can chose the version to download from Core Distribution or Web Distribution.
