cedar is open source software, meaning the source code is freely available and can be copied and modified as long as the resulting product remains free under the same license. Additionally, cedar can be used without paying for it and is thus also free as in "free beer".
Currently, we mainly support Debian and Ubuntu (Linux). We also regularly compile on MacOSX, and sometimes on Windows. We plan to fully support the latter two operating systems in the near future.
cedar is distributed under the GNU LGPLv3.
cedar is developed as part of the European Union Seventh Framework Programme FP7-ICT-2009-6 under grant agreement no. 270247 - NeuralDynamics.
The release dates given in the download section are rough estimates, which may be adjusted along the process of releasing a new version. Although all core developers of cedar do not work full-time on cedar (in fact, for most of us it is more of a side project), we work hard to bring you new and improved versions of our software - sometimes sooner, sometimes later.
We have decided to streamline our release process, so you do not have to wait a year in-between releases. We now only feature two repositories: release and development. You should only use the release repository.
The number X marks a major named release, Y indicates the number of new features since release of version X, and Z is the number of bug fixes since we added the Yth feature.
If you are interested in contributing to the cedar development, please write us an e-mail. You can also develop plugins, which we then include in our list of related resources. Please see the download section for more details.
