Since the end of 2014, it is also possible to use GIT to download the latest development version of EEGLAB from Bitbucket at any time - this version is more recent that the ZIP above.

Another tool we use is sourcetree to visualize branches. After downloading it, right click on any folder and select Clone. Fill in the required field with the information below and press OK.

Under Linux or Mac OSX, simply type in from the command line

 git clone 

Note that for Mac OS X, you might have to download and install GIT first.

Accessing branches

All other branches refer to previous version of EEGLAB or unstable code that is under intensive development. To update the EEGLAB code using the latest development sources, simply right click on the EEGLAB folder and select "git pull".

Prior repository systems

EEGLAB was first under RCS (2002-2005), then under CVS (2005-2010), and finally under SVN (2010-2014) before migrating to GIT (2014-). All the revision message have been preserved in the migration process. It is however not possible to access the RCS, CVS, and SVN repositories since they refer to obsolete versions of EEGLAB.
