We provide installers for Windows, macOS (v10.9 or greater), and Debian-based Linux. See community maintained builds section for alternative Linux installations.
|Latest Stable Release||Download||Download||Download|
Our releases page also contains the latest
release, pre-releases, and past builds.
Note: If the deb fails to install using the Ubuntu Software Center, install manually via
sudo dpkg -i <path to deb>. You'll need to run
sudo apt-get install -f if this is the first time installing it to install dependencies
To install from source or make changes to the application, continue to the next section below.
Community maintained builds for Arch Linux and Flatpak are available, see below. These installs will need to be updated manually as the in-app update process only supports deb installs at this time. Note: If coming from a deb install, the directory structure is different and you'll need to migrate data.
