Introduction

    • (please note that if you are reading this on any site but http://www.opensimulator.org that you might not be actually downloading OpenSimulator.org software please check your browser URL before proceeding any further)

Please note: Depending on what you want to do with OpenSimulator, setting it up may require a fair amount of technical knowledge. After downloading OpenSim, please consult the several instruction manuals on this Wiki and elsewhere. Please be aware that the learning curve for operating OpenSim is steep.

As OpenSim is still at an alpha code maturity stage, there is absolutely no guarantee that functionality works or is stable.


Binary Packages

Binary packages of the latest OpenSim release are provided in .zip or .tar.gz form - these are identical apart from the compression format. Once you've unzipped/untarred these you'll be able to run OpenSim 'out of the box' in standalone mode - no code compilation required.

The current release is Template:LastReleaseVersion (released on Template:LastReleaseDate) and can be downloaded at:

Further instructions can be found in README.txt after you untar/unzip the archives.


The latest 0.7RC2 test candidate (released on 4th July 2010) can be downloaded at:

Installers

The OpenSim project does not currently provide installers for the latest releases - you're better off downloading the binary packages and just unzipping them - this is equivalent to an installation. However, if you do want an executable installer, here are some links to some install packages.

  • 0.6.x Mac OS X Installer
http://forge.opensimulator.org/gf/download/frsrelease/206/706/OpenSimulator-0.6.8.dmg
http://forge.opensimulator.org/gf/download/frsrelease/198/587/OpenSimulator-0.6.6-post-fixes-r9993.dmg
  • 0.6.6 (and other releases/revs) unofficial Debian and Ubuntu Linux .deb packages

Other Distributions

Other projects are free to repackage OpenSim and add their own modules or configuration. Current known distributions are

  • Diva Distribution, a Preconfigured hypergrided standalone, binary distribution. Easy to setup and to keep up to date. Windows and Linux/Unix. Download the file diva-rNNNN.zip, unzip it, read README.txt and take it from there.

http://github.com/diva/d2/downloads

  • OSGrid distribution. This is preconfigured for connection of an OpenSim instance to http://osgrid.org.

Source code

If for some reason you cannot run the binary distribution, you can grab the sources and compile them. The latest source releases are always hosted at http://dist.opensimulator.org.

Both these packages are the same except for the compression format.


Previous releases

You can find previous releases of OpenSim at http://dist.opensimulator.org. Older releases only have source code packages.
