Download FreeMarker

Dependencies: FreeMarker has no required dependencies, except Java (Standard Edition) itself, with the minimum version indicated for each download below.

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; you should be able to replace the FreeMarker binary (freemarer.jar) under your application with a newer one without breaking anything (obviously, assuming that only public FreeMarker API-s were used).

Change log (version history): See here...

All downloads include the binary (freemarker.jar), the source code, and the full documentation (unless said otherwise).


The latest stable release, released on 2015-03-01. Requires J2SE 1.4 or higher.
Download freemarker-2.3.22.tar.gz (3.2 MB, includes binary, documentation and source code)

For Maven:

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!

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:

      <groupId>freemarker<!-- Do NOT use this org-less group! --></groupId>

If you need to use FreeMarker on Google App Engine, download the GAE-compatible binary too. (This is only the binary.)
