Nightly Release Snapshots


Every night, Greenstone snapshot releases are automatically generated for Windows, Linux, and Mac. They are made available at our snapshots page.


GLI Client


The GLI Client for Greenstone versions 2.85 and 2.84 is included in the Greenstone installer. To use it, you would install Greenstone itself.
For those using the older Greenstone 2.83 release, you can download a separate package containing just the GLI client. This is a stand-alone GLI program that enables you to build collections on a remote server, without having Greenstone installed locally.
