Currently source tarballs and Linux and Windows (Cygwin) binaries are available. fricas-1.2.0-full.tar.bz2 is a "full" source tarball containing pregenerated Lisp files and images. It also contains noweb. To use it you need working Lisp compiler.
fricas-1.2.0.i386.tar.bz2 is 32-bit binary for i386 Linux. fricas-1.2.0.amd64.tar.bz2 is 64-bit binary for amd64 (x86_64) Linux. Binaries are _not_ specific to any distribution, they should work equally well on various distributions. Provided binaries were build using sbcl-1.0.22 and contain GMP support: if you have GMP installed on your machine FriCAS will use it, otherwise FriCAS will use slower routines provided by sbcl.
fricas-1.2.0-win32.tbz is 32-bit binary for Windows (Cygwin). It was build using Cygwin Clisp.
Or you can use: Sourceforge download page
You need a working SVN command that supports the HTTP protocol. You can get a copy from subversion site
To get the mainline version of FriCAS just do
svn co svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/fricas/code/trunk fricas
This will put the sources in a directory named fricas. Note that you need to fetch dependencies separately. Also, SVN version contains only a few pregenerated files -- just enough to bootstrap.
