  • [5,1 MB] seagull-1.0.4 (includes PEAR libs, EN language only, MySQL data only, and some of the BSD modules)
  • [309 kb] API docs

A full list of historical releases is also available.

Download Package

The download package provides the smallest amount of downloadable code and just the core framework components. Currently it's distributed with PEAR and FCKeditor wysiwyg libraries. Without said libraries the core Seagull code is just 504kb, we're working on further extracting the dependencies. Also in the near future the user module will be extracted and installable on demand like the other modules.

Full Package

The full package is available from svn, minus a few administrative scripts and non-essential examples. If you're a developer wanting to run the test suite, or you want to try the many modules/applications provided with the framework, this package is your best bet.

PEAR package

The PEAR package is recommended for experienced developers and offers the advantage that it fully integrates Seagull with your PEAR repository, and takes advantage of any libs you may already have installed. Obviously when you choose this option you can upgrade your PEAR libs independently of when new Seagull releases come out. The PEAR installer also resolves all package dependencies automatically.

Best Results
