Nightly build downloads

Angle PatternAngle PatternPanel BGPanel BG

Below you can find download links for nightly builds of KNIME Analytics Platform.

These builds contain everything required to run KNIME but do not include the development extensions. This version is not intended for developers (if you do want to write own nodes, check out our developer documentation), it’s really for those who want to try the bleeding edge version of KNIME Analytics Platform.

In order to run KNIME Analytics Platform after your download is complete, extract the archive or run the installer and start the executable file (under Windows 'knime.exe', under Linux 'knime', on the Mac ''). For detailed instructions, please refer to the readme.txt contained in the archive.

The nightly builds come pre-configured to point to the KNIME nightly builds update site, so whenever you update KNIME Analytics Platform you will get the most recent nightly version. Note that because this is the development version of KNIME and things can change very quickly (see the important disclaimer below), it’s possible that a nightly build installation that has been updated repeatedly may end up corrupted in one form or another. If you notice that your install is starting to act strangely, please try installing a new nightly build from scratch.

If you encounter a problem with the nightly build or have suggestions for how we could improve the new nodes, please let us know in our forum. Please mention that you're using the nightly build in your forum post title.

Really, really, really important disclaimer

This is most definitely not production quality code. These nightly builds are what we use internally to validate and test recent developments, so they are not tested as thoroughly as standard KNIME releases. Furthermore new nodes or functionality may change substantially (or disappear entirely) from one build to the next. It’s even possible that workflows you edit or create with nightly builds stop being readable by future (or past) versions...

These nightlies are a great way to get a sneak peek at what may be coming in the next version of KNIME and provide feedback and suggestions. They are not a particularly safe way to do real work.
