Download latest release
In our software repository you find links to all sources, RPMs & YUM repository files, Debian & Ubuntu packages, auxillary Java jar-files, and Windows 32- and 64- bit installers. We recommend Linux as it is our development platform, and 64-bits binaries for databases with tables that are expected to grow beyond 2 GB diskspace.
Release notes for current and previous releases provide additional information.
After downloading and install the best way to start is to follow the Linux or Windows tutorial.
To justify our effort in maintaining and expanding MonetDB, we appreciate if you reference our science papers and/or join our mailing list.
A feature release is scheduled once every four months or so. Backward compatibility is maintained as best as possible, but some major feature releases may require a dump/restore action.
In between feature releases, we issue monthly bug-fix releases. Simply stopping the server, installing the bug-fix release, and restarting the server is sufficient to remain up to date. We recommend users to deploy the latest (bug-fix) release.
