About versions

The latest released version is 0.94 . We release early and often, so releases may become outdated quickly. Due to limited manpower, we cannot investigate bugs that occur on older release series (such as 0.15.x), unless they also affect the newest supported release or the development version.

Various Linux distributions (Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, Arch, OpenSUSE, etc.) provide Pitivi in their repositories, but the version provided may be too old. For an optimal experience, make sure you are using Pitivi 0.94 . Otherwise, we strongly recommend you try the "distro-agnostic bundles" approach presented below.

Pre-built, distro-agnostic bundles

In order to ease testing across Linux distributions, eliminate dependency problems and allow for quicker testing cycles, we have created a distro-agnostic, all-in-one binary bundle. Our entire stack is bundled, so the only requirement is glibc ≥ 2.13.

Those bundles have been created as part of 2014 Pitivi fundraiser effort; you can get them from the fundraiser page or directly from the download mirror page.

Tarballs of Pitivi's source code are also available on the GNOME downloads page (for packagers, typically), but you should only use that if you really know what you're doing.

Compile the development version

Are you super excited to contribute to the development of our next release?

Building Pitivi often means you need to build our whole stack along with it… but fear not! We have documented the process and built tools to make it easy for technically-inclined folks like you to get started. Take a look at the Pitivi GES build instructions (make sure to see the dependencies page first).

Note: if all you want is to test the development version (not play with the code), you should probably be using the "daily" versions of our distro-agnostic bundles instead.
