‘Stable’ releases

If you need any help with Cumulus, Please first use this Wiki FAQ then use the forum.

The author of Cumulus/Cumulus MX has retired and will not be providing support or updates to this software.

We do not have copies of old versions of Cumulus, so please do not ask for them. Only the current version is supported. If you obtain copies of older versions of Cumulus from elsewhere (e.g. web archives) please do not ask for help with them. We strongly advise against using an old unsupported version, if only for the fact that it is likely to have bugs which have been fixed in later releases.

Note that if you use certain anti-virus software -- in particular Avast or Symantec -- you may find that they flag the Cumulus installer, or Cumulus itself, as a ‘threat’ and block it, for a few days or weeks after a new version has been released, even though it does not actually contain a virus of any kind. This is due to a system they call ‘reputation’ where they automatically block any versions of software which have recently been released. You may want to consider complaining to the provider of your anti-virus software about this ridiculous system, or better still, use some better anti-virus software.

Please read the announcement for the latest release in the forum before installing it. If you are upgrading from a previous version of Cumulus, please read all of the release notes (in the announcement threads) for the builds since the version you are upgrading from.

Beta and test releases
  • Cumulus MX v3.0.0 build 3043 20-Jan-2017 Cumulus MX, a cross platform version of Cumulus which runs on Windows, Linux (including the Raspberry Pi) and Mac OS X.
  • Cumulus MX Source Code Offered completely without support in the hope that it might be useful. The code is very badly structured due to the 'Frankenstein' way it was cobbled together from various places. Some of it is a machine translation of parts of Cumulus 1.
