Evolution in Flatpak

Users can build and run the latest stable (or development) Evolution in Flatpak, even on older distributions. A detailed guide can be found on the Evolution Flatpak sub-page.

Get the Source Code

The Evolution project releases its source code as tarball files, from which Free Software distributors can create easily-installable binary packages for users.

Most likely your Free Software distribution (Fedora, Mint, Ubuntu, etc.) already provides binary packages for Evolution. The following links are only for the source code.

The latest stable releases are the 3.30 series. Tarballs can be found for these various components (see also the ".news" files accompanying them for a list of changes):

The latest development snapshot tarballs (3.31 series, what will become 3.32) can be found below (after the first 3.31 release):

Or you can clone the source code repositories with git:

  • git clone git://git.gnome.org/evolution-data-server (Browse)

  • git clone git://git.gnome.org/evolution (Browse)

  • git clone git://git.gnome.org/evolution-ews (optional, for Microsoft Exchange servers) (Browse)

  • git clone git://git.gnome.org/evolution-mapi (optional, for old Microsoft Exchange servers) (Browse)

You can also view the schedule of upcoming releases.
