First Things First

Context Free is free and made available under the Gnu Public License.

If you really like it, we'd like you to donate US$20 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Download & Install

Version 3.0.8 is the current release.

Windows

Context Free 3.0.8 (v37) (9.5MB) for Windows XP and later. The download file is an executable installer, just run it. This is a local installer that will install Context Free in your ApplicationData\Local folder. .Net Framework 4 is required to run. The installer will warn you if you don't have .Net4. Get .Net4 here if you need to install it.

Because Context Free is switching to a local-style installer, there may be conflicts if you have a previous version of Context Free installed. We recommend that you uninstall the previous version first.

Windows Command-Line Version

The installer also installs a command-line version of Context Free, called ContextFreeCLI.exe. It is identical to the Unix command-line version, cfdg, except that it uses Windows/DOS command syntax:

ContextFreeCLI.exe /s400 /c input\mtree.cfdg output\mtree.png

instead of

cfdg -s400 -c input/mtree.cfdg output/mtree.png

Macintosh OS X

Context Free 3.0.8 (v40) (944kB) for Mac OS X 10.7 and later. Just copy the application from the disk image to your Applications folder. PPC support has been dropped.

OS X Mountain Lion users: This version of Context Free is signed. It should run with just the standard warning about content from the internet.

OS X Leopard & Snow Leopard users: This version only supports OS X 10.7 (Lion) or later.

Posix / Unix / BSD / Linux

Download the source code and build using make. You'll need a C++ compiler, flex (not lex), bison, and the libpng graphics library (not just runtime support, the whole developer package). Most of this should be installed or easily available on any modern operating system distribution. See the README.txt file in the source for build and run instructions:

ContextFree 3.0.8 compressed tarball (v24) (9.8MB)

ContextFree 3.0.8 compressed zip file (v24) (10.3MB)

The lastest developer release can be obtained from the Mercurial repository at Google Code:

hg clone https://code.google.com/p/context-free/ CF3

This release can be obtained via the Version3.0.8 tag.

hg clone -r Version3.0.8 https://code.google.com/p/context-free/ CF3
