Hive is free software: it is available to you under the GNU General Public License.

Stable
To access the Hive code, feel free to download a release version from the
Hive project page. From there the binary version and the source to the Hive-base and the Hive-applications are available. Once you have downloaded Hive, you may want to follow our getting started guide. Please be sure you understand the security implications of using Hive before running it.

Special note for Windows users: if you are having trouble unpacking these files, don't open them from your browser - instead, save them to disk and make sure the name ends in ".tar.gz". Then WinZip should be able to handle open it.

Patches
There are a couple of bugs in the 19991210 release of Hive, which we would like to solve for our uesrs, however since development has progress through 20000327, any changes we make in that release cannot be directly applied to the stable release. The patch file contains the source and binary version of the classes that are being effected -- either replace the source file you have and recompile, replace the class file in the jar, or (the ugly solution), put this class file in the classpath before your binary version of hive.

Patch for CellCommand
Fixes some command line parsing, and not it can actually find the CellControlAgent on the cell

Development
This version of Hive is not as "bleeding edge" as that which is accessible via CVS -- it is relatively stable, however it is not fully tested, and its interoperability with previous versions of Hive is not guaranteed. Its availibity is to allow developers and users to experiement with upcoming features of the system, and to allow us to get feedback on the improvements and changes. These versions are usually not as well documented, but as always, the Hive team are always available to help out.
