The current production release of SCons is 2.5.1 [ ChangeLog].

The last stable release prior to this one is 2.5.0.

Other versions of SCons are available directly from our files page at SourceForge.

We make SCons available in three different sets of packages, for three distinct purposes: the scons packages, the scons-local packages, and the scons-src packages.

SCons Packages

The SCons packages are the basic packages for installing SCons on your system and using it or experimenting with it. You only need one of the following packages if you just want to try out SCons:

Production (2.5.1)

Prior stable (2.5.0)

The Gzip tar file and Zip file are installable using the Python setup.py script in the package. The Source RPM contains .tar.gz and .spec files to build your own RPM.

scons-local Packages

The scons-local packages contain versions of SCons that you can execute standalone, out of a local directory. They are intended to be dropped in to and shipped with packages of other software that you want to build with SCons, but for which you don't want to have to require that your users install SCons:

Production (2.5.1)

Prior stable (2.5.0)

scons-src Packages

The scons-src packages contain the complete source tree, including everything we use to package SCons and all of the regression tests. You might want one of these packages if you have concerns about whether SCons is working correctly on your operating system and wanted to run the regression tests, or if you want to contribute to SCons development:

Production (2.5.1)

Prior stable (2.5.0)
