Kannel: Download Page

From this page you can download Kannel in various formats. There are also instructions for accessing the SVN server. You probably want to review the license.

If you're going to compile Kannel yourself, you need to download and install the Gnome XML library, libxml, from http://xmlsoft.org/xml.html.
If you are installing it from your distribution's packages, you'll need libxml2-dev in addition to run-time libxml2 package libraries.

Current status

The Kannel Group has made a new stable release 1.4.5 available. This release is intended for production systems.

If you are interested in contributing to the development, please use the SVN trunk tree and send suggestions and patches in diff -u notation to the developer's mailing list. Please provide us any bug reports via our bug tracking system.

Stable release

This section contains the latest stable release version, version 1.4.5.

Fedora RPM packages

This section contains RPM packages of the stable version.
See Fedora repository.

Debian packages

This section contains DEB packages of the stable version.
See Debian repository.

Development release

This section contains the latest development release version, version 1.5.0. It is most likely suitable for production use, but may have at least some problems. Please test it, this will help make sure it will work well when it becomes the stable version.

SVN access to source code

You can look at the current development version of the sources directly from our subversion control system. We use SVN, so you need to install that first. (See for example SVNhome.org for a source distribution, or your Linux distribution for ready-to-install binaries.)

  1. Get sources using the following command
    svn co https://svn.kannel.org/<project>/trunk

    where <project> is: gateway, sqlbox or opensmppbox.
  2. Later, when you want to check whether there have been changes, do the following:
    cd gateway
    svn up

If you want to send us patches, please send the output of svn diff. Please send the patches as plain text attachments to devel@kannel.org

Web access to source code

In addition to the normal SVN client, you can browse the SVN repository directly using or navigate through the source code cross-reference via Doxygen documentation.

Daily snapshots

The following are daily snapshots from SVN. They are generated around 0600 GMT every day.
