GNU Eiffel Compiler

Liberty Eiffel is the GNU Eiffel Compiler.

Liberty Eiffel home

Liberty Eiffel is hosted on its own server. All information is available on www.liberty-eiffel.org or in our wiki.


Liberty Eiffel can be found on the GNU savannah ftp server, or in the apt repository as Debian packages.


Class documentation for libraries and tools of Liberty Eiffel and a guided tour through the programming tutorial to get started hacking Eiffel code is available online.

Mailing lists

Liberty Eiffel has one mailing list:

Announcements about Liberty Eiffel and most other GNU software are made on info-gnu (archive).

Security reports that should not be made immediately public can be sent directly to the maintainers (find names in AUTHORS file). If there is no response to an urgent issue, you can escalate to the general security mailing list for advice.

Getting involved

Development of Liberty Eiffel, and GNU in general, is a volunteer effort, and you can contribute. For information, please read How to help GNU. If you'd like to get involved, it's a good idea to join the discussion mailing list (see above).

Test releases
Trying the latest test release or even the current git HEAD is always appreciated. Due to our continuous integration and test server, normally even the development tree is working. Test releases in the form of release candidates are normally distributed via FTP server and announced on the mailing list shortly before a release is built.
For development sources, issue trackers, and other information, please see the Liberty Eiffel project page at savannah.gnu.org.
Translating Liberty Eiffel
Translating Liberty Eiffel's messages into other languages is currently not planned but if you'd like to investigate into this, feel free to discuss your proposal on the mailing list.
Liberty Eiffel is currently being maintained by Liberty Eiffel developers. Please use the mailing lists for contact or see the AUTHORS file.
