The doxygen mailing lists

Sourceforge hosts a number of mailing lists to which you can subscribe for doxygen related discussion (the form above is an interface for subscribing to the announcement list).

GIT repository

The GIT repository for doxygen is hosted on GitHub. In this repository you can be find the latest "bleeding edge" version of doxygen.

If you have the necessary build tools installed (i.e. g++, python, cmake, flex, bison), you should do the following to get the initial copy of the repository:

git clone
cd doxygen
After that you can use
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" ..
To force a fresh build after an earlier check-out simple remove the build directory and redo the steps above.

After the binaries have been built, you can use

make install
to install them.

Public access to the GIT repository is read-only at the moment. So it is not possible to directly commit changes. Instead you can clone the repository, make you changes and create a pull request to notify me. I'll review the changes and include them (assuming they are correct and relevant).

GIT binaries

For every commit and pull request a build is performed on a number of platforms and configurations. The build results can be found on the GitHub Actions page by clicking a workflow run and scroll to the "Artifacts" area.

Helpers tools & Scripts

I've made a separate page with helper tools and scripts, which you may find useful.

Other platforms

Dave Chapeskie maintains the FreeBSD port of doxygen. It is included in the FreeBSD Ports system.

Dagobert Michelsen maintains the Solaris port of doxygen at OpenCSW.


Doxygen should also compile on most other Unix platforms. If you have a ported doxygen to a platform not listed above, please let me know if/what you had to change.

If anyone wants to contribute a binary for another platform or packaging method, I would be happy to include (a link to) it here.
