Help:Download 1.7.1 - 1.8.0
Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) can be obtained from various sources. Complete file releases are distributed via the SMW project page on SourceForge, while the current development version can be accessed through MediaWiki's Git/Gerrit system. See Installation for details on installing SMW.
Semantic MediaWiki is released more or less regularly as a compressed archive file on SourceForge. Those stable releases are recommended for production use. The current stable release of Semantic MediaWiki can be obtained from the project's download page at SourceForge. It also includes the files for the Extension "Validator" extension which is required for SMW 1.6.0 or higher.
SMW and Validator releases and current development files can be accessed online via Git. The Git directories of SMW and of Validator show the current up-to-date content of the development repository. To check out a working copy of the current development files, you can use the following command for Semantic MediaWiki:
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/extensions/SemanticMediaWiki.git
and for Validator
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/extensions/Validator.git
Typically this is used directly from within the
extension folder of your MediaWiki installation. Of course, a Git client needs to be installed for this to work.
Starting with SMW 0.6 all stable releases of SMW are tagged and available on Git: In addition to the clone you have to to
git checkout <tag_name>
For SMW 1.8 you would do
git checkout 1.8
See this list of available release tags for Semantic MediaWiki and this list of available release tags for Validator.
Starting with SMW 1.8, each release familiy (for instance SMW 1.8 and 1.8.1) has a branch on which further development can be done and bugfixes can be backported for new minor releases. These branches are named in the format 1.8.x. A list of them can be found here.
You can get such a branch using:
git fetch origin 1.8.x:1.8.x
And can then switch to it with:
git checkout 1.8.x
You can at any point get the latest code on this branch by doing a pull:
git pull origin 1.8.x
You can also download Semantic MediaWiki as part of a pre-generated package, that also contains related extensions: Extension "Semantic Bundle".
