NOTE: There are also more recent nightly builds available in the forums or (for Ubuntu users) in the Ubuntu PPA repository. Please note that we consider nightly builds to be stable, usually.

NOTE: We have a Changelog for 20.03, that gives you an overview over the enhancements and fixes we have put in the new release.

NOTE: The default builds are 64 bit (starting with release 20.03). We also provide 32bit builds for convenience.

Note: The Linux packages above are compressed archives (tar, tar.xz or tar.bz2). When you decompress the package you downloaded on your system, you will find all the .rpm or .deb packages required to install Code::Blocks.

Note: On RedHat/CentOS older revisions of 6 (up to 6.2 as far as we know) you need to add repoforge (former rpmforge) to your repolist, to be able to install the needed wxGTK-package. See for an instruction.

Note: Redhat/CentOS probably also needs an installed hunspell-package, if you want to install the contrib-plugins.
