GAP 4.11.0

For an overview of changes in GAP 4.11.0 see file.

Linux and macOS

Download one of the gap-4.11.0.* archives below, unpack it and run ./configure && make in the unpacked directory. Then change to the pkg subdirectory and call ../bin/ to run the script which will build most of the packages that require compilation (provided sufficiently many libraries, headers and tools are available). For further details, see here. Expert users can find the description of all installation options in the file.

You may also consider one of the alternative distributions. Note, however, that these are updated independently and may not yet provide the latest GAP release.


For users of Windows 10, we strongly recommend using GAP via the Windows Subsystem for Linux.

Otherwise, we recommend the use of the following .exe installer, which contains 64-bit binaries for GAP (compiled with the support of GMP and readline libraries) and for selected GAP packages, and provides the standard installation procedure.

Note that the path to the GAP directory should not contain spaces. For example, you may install GAP in C:\gap-4.11.0 (default), D:\gap-4.11.0 or C:\Math\GAP\gap-4.11.0, but you must not install it in a directory named like C:\Program files\gap-4.11.0 or C:\Users\alice\My Documents\gap-4.11.0 etc.

gap-4.11.0.exe 618 MB sha256: fa9e2147ae00a5e55e8b75a2798e051fb0e628881170031447748b206196a684

The .exe installer should work for the majority of users. Alternatively (for example, if you don't have administrator's privileges on your Windows computer), you may use the archive with 64-bit GAP for Windows, and edit .bat files manually following instructions from the file. 727 MB sha256: e05f96aa375d0dbe6aa61af38b5815dc4b774943883a56c78f84f72af218a3f2

We also provide a 32-bit archive of GAP for Windows. 496 MB sha256: da0544c91a7a7b3bd3d74ad194a29d589a93eed232f3aa7c14497363bd6074dd
