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 disk space.

The software repository provides a tarball to start compilation. The detailed steps are separately documented.

2. Getting started

The MonetDB embedded engine is available for C (by linking to the library and Python (available from PyPi).

3. Stay up to date

A feature release is scheduled once every six 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.

The release notes provide additional information on the latest improvements.
