Official source tarballs

We only provide source tarballs. Fail2ban is written in Python, thus no compilation is required. You can even run Fail2ban without installing it.

experimental  : fail2ban-0.10.x
stable  : fail2ban-0.9.4
very-stable  : fail2ban-0.8.14
dont-wanna-be-released-ever-again -- 0.8.x fixes  : GIT 0.8 branch
yet-to-be-released -- 0.9.x fixes  : GIT master branch

Source version control

In September 2011 development version control switched from SVN on SF to git, hosted on github. To contribute, please create your own fork of Fail2ban on github, push your changes into it and submit pull requests.

You will also be able to download complete source tarballs for any existing tag/release or development master from fail2ban Releases on github.
