Documentation relating to each release of Rec is obtained by following the links in the table below. Here you can access directly the doxygen documentation of the most recent release, and the complete set of release notes.
Normally, end users should not need to worry about selecting a version of Rec, as this is selected automatically when selecting an application version. When working outside an application, the environment can be set using the RecEnv script. The following versions are available in the release area

Supported platforms and compilers
Source code and binaries for supported platforms are available on disk (in AFS directory /afs/cern.ch/lhcb/software/releases - $LHCBRELEASES), and in the form of tar file distribution kits. The following platform+compiler combinations are supported:
Note that the binaries are built using sse2 extensions. They will not work on older machines that do not support the sse2 instruction set (e.g. Pentium III, AMD Sempron)
