EPICS 7.0 Release Series

This is the current release series of EPICS. We are trying to make releases of the 7.0 series more frequently then previously, roughly every 2-3 months but depending on need as bugs are discovered and fixed.

Continuous Integration

The latest code from the 7.0 series gets built and tested on various operating systems shortly after changes are committed to the Git repository at The build status for Unix-like OS builds can be found here and for Microsoft Windows builds can be found here. A separate set of test builds using different Linux compilers and build settings can be seen here on Travis CI.

Point Releases

Each released version has its own page containing links to its documentation and the relevent files in the software download area. Released versions may have subsequent patch releases, which are documented under the parent version number.

Platforms Supported

The following host platforms are supported in the latest release above:

  • GNU/Linux on Intel, PowerPC or ARM
  • MacOS X (Darwin) on Intel
  • MS Windows on x86 or x64 using MS Visual Studio, Cygwin, or MinGW

These IOC target platforms are currently supported:

  • GNU/Linux on Intel, PowerPC or ARM
  • MacOS X (Darwin) on Intel
  • MS Windows on x86 or x64
  • RTEMS releases up to 4.10.x on any previously supported CPU.
  • vxWorks 6.8 or later on PowerPC or Intel CPUs.

Software Download

Tarfiles of released versions of Base can be retrieved from the Base Download area.

The source code for all release branches of Base can be obtained using git by cloning the URL but note that the 7.0 series uses git submodules, so you need to use the --recursive flag. The PVA submodules will be downloaded (automatically) from GitHub, (not from the Launchpad website where the 7.0 branch resides).

Thus to check out the 7.0 branch use this command:

git clone --recursive -b 7.0 base-7.0
