About backward compatibility: Before 2.3.0, releases with different second version numbers (like 2.2.x and 2.3.x) aren't fully compatible. The 2.3.x series is quite conservative about backward compatibility, so you can upgrade FreeMarker without much risk within it.

All downloads include the binary (freemarker.jar), the source code, and the full documentation (unless said otherwise).
The latest stable release, released on 2014-10-12. Requires J2SE 1.4 or higher.
For Maven (and for other dependency managers):
<!-- Attention: Be sure nothing pulls in an old dependency with groupId "freemarker" (without the "org."), because then you will end up with two freemarker.jar-s and unpredictable behavior! --> <dependency> <groupId>org.freemarker</groupId> <artifactId>freemarker</artifactId> <version>2.3.21</version> </dependency>
Until about 2007 the Maven group name was "freemarker" instead of "org.freemarker", and as the XML comment above says, this can cause problems, as Maven will see them as two independent artifacts with no version conflict. If you run into this issue, find the dependency that depends on the old FreeMarker, and add this to your application's POM where you declare the problematic dependency:
<dependency> <groupId>...</groupId> <artifactId>...</artifactId> <version>...</version> <exclusions> <exclusion> <groupId>freemarker<!-- Do NOT use this org-less group! --></groupId> <artifactId>freemarker</artifactId> </exclusion> </exclusions> </dependency>
If you need to use FreeMarker on Google App Engine, download the GAE-compatible binary too. (This is only the binary.)
<dependency> <groupId>org.freemarker</groupId> <artifactId>freemarker-gae</artifactId> <version>2.3.20</version> </dependency>
