cedar Overdue Oud (current version)

Overdue Oud features an improved approach to looped triggers.


Here, you can download the latest release version of cedar. We offer source-tarballs (tar/bz2), which can be compiled on Linux, MacOS, and Windows.

Release date

The release date of Overdue Oud, version 5.0 is April 17, 2015.

Platform support

The main platform we support is Linux. However, we also compile cedar on Mac OSX and Windows machines, so they should work as well, and we plan to fully support them in the very near future.

What's planned for the future?

There is still a huge list of features we want to implement. Fully completing it in a short time, unfortunately, exceeds our available time and resources. You can find out what we plan to do in the short run by looking at our tracker and searching for our next release dubbed "ludicrous lute". If you do not find a feature in there, do not hesitate to let us know!

How to get started

If you want to get started, you should first download and install cedar. Once done, have a look at the documentation - it should provide you with everything you need to get started.

Please visit our bitbucket page if you want to check out the latest source code from the repository.

cedar VM

We offer a virtual machine that comes with a pre-installed cedar. This is the easiest way to test out our software. In our own experience, it takes less than 5 minutes after downloading and unzipping the archive below to start up cedar.


Here you can download the virtual machine containing cedar. You need to install VirtualBox on your machine before using our VM. An installation guide (README) is included in the zip archive.

cedar plugins

cedar can be extended at run-time with plugins (as explained here). We have collected a list of plugins that might be interesting for you. If you are developing your own plugin and believe that it could be interesting for a broader audience, please write us an e-mail, so that we can include your project in this list. We ask you to provide a short description of the plugin, a public repository either on bitbucket or github, and a readme.me file in the base folder of the plugin that describes the content of the plugin and build instructions if necessary. Please also state the version of cedar your plugin compiles against (release or development, possibly a version number).
