ERIKA v2.x - Downloads

Release schedule and version numbers

ERIKA Enterprise and RT-Druid v2.x follow a 12-month release schedule, with additional updates automatically released on an Eclipse update repository.

Basically ERIKA Enterprise and RT-Druid are developed incrementally. Every night a set of regression tests are run, and when all tests passes correctly the plugins are automatically updated on the website. These plugins are always available on the Latest nightly build section at the end of this page.

Afterwards, every 12 months we tag the Latest nightly build and give it a version number to create the Latest release, which is basically a complete software distribution that is the first one installed on your machines. The plugins available for download in the Latest release are the once used in the release packages.

Note that changes which are not backward compatible (like data structures changes happened after the release of version 2.2.0) typically happens just after a release.

Instructions on how to use this version on Linux

On windows systems, the default toolchain requires Cygwin to work. You need an up to date installation that includes at least gcc, dos2unix, make.
NOTE: In the past we provided a a minimal Cygwin installation pack, that you can use as a reference; however, that package no longer contains the up-to date packages (in particular, make) needed to compile on the latest versions. If you install it, please immediately update the packages to their newer version using the installer you can find on
