GATE Download Page

On this page you can find the latest stable release of GATE Developer and Embedded, as well as the latest nightly built snapshots.

For other GATE products please go to GATECloud.net or follow the links to the source code from our Sourceforge pages.

NOTE: if you are upgrading from one version of GATE to another you must delete your user configuration file before running the new version. The user configuration file is typically ~/.gate.xml on Unix-style platforms (including Mac OS X), C:\Documents and Settings\username\gate.xml on Windows XP, and C:\Users\username\gate.xml on Windows Vista or later.

Release 7.1 (November 30th 2012)

This release of GATE requires a recent Java 6 or 7 (no earlier than Java 6 update 10, 1.6.0_10). This release is NOT compatible with Java 8 - if you use Java 8 you should download the latest snapshot instead. The Windows installer will direct you to the appropriate download page if you do not have Java at all, or if your version is too old. Mac, Linux and Solaris users who do not have an appropriate JVM installed already can download one from Oracle's download page - for Mac OS X you must install the JDK, not the JRE, for other platforms the JRE is sufficient (but the JDK is still recommended).

If the installers don't work for you, you can download the following packages. You will need to provide your own Java VM (version 6.0 or higher) and set your JAVA_HOME appropriately. Details are in the "getting started" chapter of the user guide.

The BIN, SRC and ALL packages all include the full set of GATE plugins and all the libraries GATE requires to run, including sample trained models for the LingPipe and OpenNLP plugins.
