Two types of packages are available for download: Source and Builds.
Exiv2 is supported on Linux, macOS, Cygwin, MinGW/msys2 and Microsoft Visual Studio. The code can be build in 32 or 64 bits as a static or shared library (DLL) 32bit is obsolete on the macOS, Cygwin and MinGW/msys2 platforms.
Source code for every revision of Exiv2 is available from GitHUB.
The complete source code to build the Exiv2 library, command line utility and several example and test applications, test scripts and test files.
After downloading and unpacking the distribution, see README.md in the top directory for build and installation notes and further information.
An archive of older release is provided. See the ChangeLog for a detailed list of changes between releases.
Each build includes builds of the library and sample applications. Please see ReadMe.txt in the bundle for an introduction to the contents its content. The header files and a sample application are included in the bundle and documentation to enable applications to be built.
The builds provided are those most likely to be of immediate use. If you require a 32 bit build or static libraries, or special configurations, you have to build from source.
Exiv2 has many options to compile a subset of the code. Please see README.md for more information.

As an alternative to these packages, most Linux distributions have a package management system such as yum, apt or pacman which will install binary builds and header files. On macOS the package management systems are port and brew.

Exiv2 is developed on GNU/Linux with recent versions of GCC. Written in C++, it uses the standard C++ library, some POSIX and C functions, and is portable. Dependencies are on zlib for PNG support, gettext for NLS, libiconv for characterset conversions and Expat for XMP support. (Note: current Linux distributions usually have gettext and iconv in libc and these features can be disabled individually.)
