For Blender releases under development, all repositories have moved to Git LFS. This is only relevant for building older releases.

For older releases, there are Subversion repositories with libraries and test data. These repositories also contain some old projects that are no longer active.

Repository access

Access to the repositories is provided via https:// both for anonymous (read access) and commit access (write access).

Windows, Linux and macOS libraries:


Read Access

The source code can be checked out anonymously.

You will need a Subversion client. Most systems have one installed by default. For a list of clients see Overview of Subversion clients.

When you checkout, you will probably see an error message about the certificate that is not issued by a trusted authority. However, the certificate is fully functional and will ensure secure transit of the data. You can permanently accept this certificate.

If you get the message "Certificate verification error: signed using insecure algorithm" without proposing to accept the certificate, open with the file ~/.subversion/servers and add on the bottom of it:

ssl-trust-default-ca = no
