Download RevKit

On this page, you can download the latest version of the RevKit toolkit. RevKit is implemented using C++ and runs on linux machines. For any assistance in how to install and how to run RevKit, we refer to the README file as well as the user documentation or the developer documentation. In case of any problems or questions, feel free to get in touch with us.

Of course, we are eager to know who is using RevKit. Thus, we would appreciate if you fill out the following brief form giving us some information about you and the purpose of your interest in RevKit (only for internal use). If you do not want to fill out this form, simply proceed with downloading RevKit using the link below the form.

Using this form, you can also subscribe to our newsletter.
