Previous development versions

  • Linux or Windows

    • You need a GitHub account to download the appimage/installer.
    • This is not available for OSX.

About the above links:

  • This is supposed to be a temporary topic until the new RawTherapee version, 5.9, will arrive.
  • The first two, Linux and Windows, links will point to the very latest development version.
  • The macOS links are set up differently an need to be adjusted when a new development version is generated.
  • I’ll try to keep this up-to-date. Don’t hesitate to message me if something is outdated.

Thank you Jacques! Remind me to buy you a drink whenever there is a Dutch RT meetup for your great community efforts.

if you invite me (my family is of Flemish origin and spoke Dutch…I didn’t understand anything when I was a child…) I would be very happy, but no alcohol, no cheese… :slight_smile:

Concise and to the point: what the doctor ordered and what the rest of us need.

It would be nice if there was also a link to the zipped Windows build.

It would also be nice if this thread remain very alive even after v.5.9 is released. All in all, it is about development versions, isn’t it?

And there’s an unofficial RawPedia page explaining how to use all these dev versions. (Note: use it with caution, as it won’t be updated regularly)


I agree with that, but availability to the stable version should be first and foremost once it arrives.

The ability to edit this topic, at least the original post, is one of the limiting factors for me. I’m sure that @paperdigits or even one of the other admins can edit it when needed, but I do not want to burden them with something that’s my initiative. I’m not at all familiar how discourse works in that regard, maybe I can be given unrestricted time-restraints for this one specific topic.

If at all possible I’ll keep this topic up-to-date; The links to the MacOS version and when the new stable version arrives I’ll make sure it is clear that, in general, that one should be downloaded and installed.

I’m also aware that I’m not the only one that has a say in this.

I’ve made it a wiki post, which should make it remain editable. And also editable by others.
