<p>The current stable release of Apache Cocoon is 2.1.7. Visit
<a href=""></a>
and download the file that suits you best (Linux/Unix vs. Windows). Since we
assume a Windows environment, we choose the zip file.</p>

<h3>Why are there no binary releases of Cocoon?</h3>

<p>Cocoon is a framework into which you can plug blocks (e.g. Cocoon Forms, PDF
generation, MIDI etc.). The current implementation of blocks does not allow
block activation and deactivation at run-time. For now, it is only possible to
include or exclude blocks at compile-time. This limitation will be addressed in
future versions of Cocoon.</p>

<p>This issue was discussed at length on the cocoon-dev mailing list, see:</p>

<p>Extract the zip file in the root of your drive, e.g. D:\</p>

<p class="note">Once again, it is not essential to extract the zip file in the
destination given. What we suggest here is merely for the convenience of the
tutorial. If you decide to install it in another location, you will need to
'translate' the location to your situation.</p>

<p>The root directory of this version is now <em>D:\cocoon-2.1.7</em>. We
refer to this directory as <strong>COCOON_HOME</strong>.</p>
