GNU Radio Release 3.1.0rc0 is now available for testing:
In addition, binary installation packages now exist for Ubuntu Linux
(Debian soon), eliminating the need to install build tools and compile
GNU Radio from scratch on this platform.
Release 3.1 is the new “stable” branch. Dot releases in this branch
will only contain bug fixes and new functionality; no changes will be
made that will break existing code compiled against any 3.1.x version.
These release candidate tarballs are a snapshot of the current
development trunk, with the experimental and in-development features
removed. The status of this branch is maintained at:
As always, it is strongly recommended you completely uninstall any
existing version of GNU Radio prior to installing a new version.
Please test and report your successes and failures on the list or in
Trac. Documentation about the differences between the 3.0 and 3.1
release branches will be added to the release notes as things crisp up.
GNU Radio now has experimental binary and source packages in the Debian
repository format. These allow you to install GNU Radio onto an Ubuntu
Linux or native Debian (soon) distribution without having to
perform a source compilation of the tree. In addition, the system
package manager is able to identify which runtime dependencies are
needed such that these get installed automatically when the GNU Radio
packages are installed.
Currently, binary and source packages are available for the Ubuntu 7.04
(Feisty) Linux distribution, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. These
packages may work with other Debian derivative operating systems;
however, this is untested. Packages for Debian Etch will be forthcoming
but are not in the repository yet.
Package files have been created for both the 3.1 stable release branch
and the unstable development trunk. The stable packages will only be
updated at each stable “dot” release. Packages from the trunk will be
updated on an irregular basis until we get the package build process
