Release date: 09.09.2020

Includes sources, examples, and CMake-files for creating Visual Studio solutions or Linux Makefiles. Does not contain tests. Download as:


Includes sources, tests and docs but no binaries. Download as:

Linux binaries#

The community maintains several repositories notably at the open build service. For a detailed list of repositories see below.

Furthermore there are a debian and an ubuntu launchpad project as well as an archlinux package:

To add the most recent sumo to your ubuntu you will need to do:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sumo/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sumo sumo-tools sumo-doc


If the repositories do not contain the libraries (like proj and gdal) they are either part of the distribution or you will need them from another repository (you may try one of the build service repositories here too, e.g. Application:Geo). At the moment there is no documentation included in the packages. The repositories include a nightly build as well (called sumo_nightly).

Ubuntu, Debian and Arch users please see the community repositories above.

macOS binaries#

You can read the Homebrew-based installation guide here or follow the Build instructions here.

"Bottles" are available for installing with Homebrew. They are built for the two most recent major macOS versions (currently Mojave and Catalina) and are built from source with minimal requirements (fox, proj, xerces-c). If you need optional libraries, you can specify these on the brew command line and brew will compile SUMO from source. For details, see the Formula's README.

SUMO - Alternative download and older releases#

All releases can also be obtained via the sourceforge download portal.

SUMO - Latest Development Version#

SUMO is under active development. You can find a continuously updated list of bug-fixes and enhancements at our ChangeLog. To make use of the latest features (and to give us pre-release feedback) we encourage you to use the latest version from our code repository.

Every push to our main branch also triggers a build for Windows, Linux and macOS. The results can be found by clicking on the relevant commit here and downloading the appropriate file for your platform.

Nightly Snapshots#


The code within the repository is compiled each night. The following resulting packages can be obtained:

The Linux repositories contain a nightly build as well.

The corresponding documentation is also visible live including Doxygen docs. Additional artifacts such as tests results and code coverage analysis are generated every night.


The available windows binary packages may lag behind the latest Git revision due to being compiled only once per day (around midnight, Berlin time).

Direct repository access#

You can get very latest sources directly from our Git repository, see the FAQ on repository access. Normally, they should compile and complete our test suite successfully. To assess the current state of the build, you may take a look at the nightly test statistics.


SUMO is available as different packages. The contents of each package is listed in the table below.

bin build src (source code) user docs developer docs (doxygen) data examples tutorials tests tools (except jars) jars
rpm (✔)

Dependencies for developers#

For the Windows platform you can retrieve all dependencies by cloning this repository, if you want to develop with Visual Studio. If you just want to run SUMO, use the binary downloads above which already contain the runtime dependencies.

Note on Licensing#

SUMO is licensed under the EPL-2.0 using only open source libraries.

The standard build only contains code and windows binaries with Eclipse approved licenses (especially no GPL and LGPL code). If you need features like shapefile import or the OpenSceneGraph 3D GUI download the "extra" build.
