Download the latest ProcessWire core versions

Download the latest version of ProcessWire by clicking one of the buttons below. The master version for live/production use while the dev version is for sites in development or for cases where you want the latest features.

 Download master (3.0.165) Download dev (3.0.174)

The master version is updated 2-3 times per year, while the dev version is updated almost every week. As a result, the dev version may not have as much testing as the master version, but it will also be the latest/greatest version of ProcessWire.

We recommend downloading the dev version if you are using it locally for development, while we recommend downloading the master version if it will be immediately used in a live/production environment (like if you are upgrading an existing installation). It is also generally safe to use the dev version in production after thorough testing in an non-production environment.

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
