Velocity Download Site

Velocity is distributed as a combined source/binary distribution which contains the Velocity source code, the jar files and all documentation. You only need to download one file.

The download archive is available as .zip archive (for Windows Systems) or .tar.gz archive for Unix and unix-like systems. Please note, that you need GNU tar or a GNU compatible tar program to unpack the archive. Most notably the tar program included with some versions of Sun Solaris cannot unpack the Velocity .tar.gz archive.

Feedback, questions and comments should be sent to the Velocity Users mailing list.

Please visit the Velocity Website for more information.

This site contains only the most recent release of the Velocity distribution. Please download older releases from our archive site.


Many of the files have been signing using GnuPG. If so, there will be an accompanying file.asc signature file in the same directory as the file (binaries or source). The signing keys can be found in the distribution directory at

Always download the KEYS file directly from the Apache site, never from a mirror!

Always test available signatures eg.

$ pgpk -a KEYS
$ pgpv velocity-1.4.tar.gz.asc
$ pgp -ka KEYS
$ pgp velocity-1.4.tar.gz.asc
$ gpg --import KEYS
$ gpg --verify velocity-1.4.tar.gz.asc
