3.2 Obtaining Phing

Phing is free software distributed under the terms of the LGPL.

3.2.1 Distribution Files

There are several ways to get a Phing distribution package. If you do not want to participate in developing Phing itself it is recommended that you get the latest snapshot or stable packaged distribution. If you are interested in helping with Phing development, register an account at GitHub as described below.

The easiest way to obtain the distribution package is to visit the Phing website [phing] and download the current distribution package in the format you desire.

As of version 2.0, you have the option of downloading a PEAR-installable package or the full phing distribution. If you wish to modify phing we suggestion downloading the full version so that you can (e.g.) create your own PEAR package. If you simply wish to use Phing for your own project or need it to build another package, download & install the PEAR package.
