GOAL Legacy Releases

This page lists all legacy releases of GOAL, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) as published by the Free Software Foundation.


SimpleIDE is a small stand-alone IDE that we provide as an executable JAR. It provides basic editing and runtime capabilities, mostly used by developers of the language and tools (platform) itself for quick integration testing and debugging. This is useful if, as a platform developer, you are working on, e.g., a new KR component or if you are debugging an issue in the GOAL core.

There are two main versions: the latest stable and the latest nightly build of the development version. You can download these from Github:

  • go to the github simpleIDE maven repo
  • click on the most recent X.Y.Z for the latest stable, or X.Y.Z-SNAPSHOT for the latest development build
  • download the latest ...jar-with-dependencies.jar file

This file can be executed by just double clicking it (or launching with 'java -jar ...jar-with-dependencies.jar' on a commandline). The latest stable release is also available as a Github Release.


GOAL is multi-platform, and runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX; only 64-bit is supported (older versions of GOAL do run on 32-bit). It requires that Java version 1.7 or higher is installed. GOAL has been tested using Sun Java and successfully run on the following platforms:

  • Windows 7 and higher
  • OSX: OSX 10.9 (Mavericks) or higher
  • Linux Ubuntu Trusty

Older and some other versions of these operating systems may also work but are no longer officially supported. We have, for example, been able to run on Windows XP and Windows Vista, OSX 10.6 (Snow) Leopard, Linux Debian Etch, Ubuntu Hardy, openSuse 10.3.

Note that some environments may require the installation of additional third party software. For example, the Unreal Tournaments environment that can be used with GOAL requires to install the Unreal Tournament game. Please check the readme file or documentation that comes with an environment for detailed information.

Note: From release v4715 on, we officially support only (i.e. test on) 64 bit platforms: Microsoft Windows 7, Macintosh OSX 10.6 or higher, and Linux Ubuntu Oneiric (GOAL also runs on other Linux variants but we don't support them).

Note 2: version 4632 and older require 32 bit Java if installed on Windows.
