:package: Download the latest releases

“Stable” builds

CurseForge downloads CurseForge packs

We use Curseforge to publish stable builds of the Aether for Minecraft. You can download the latest stable builds from our official page found here without signing up for an account, and even install the Aether for Minecraft using the Twitch Launcher with built-in integration for Curseforge mods. We recommend using our stable Curseforge releases for most people.

Bleeding edge builds

Jenkins build status

If you're feeling a bit more adventurous (or a developer has suggested you to do so), we provide bleeding edge builds which are produced on our official Jenkins instance. These builds are very frequently created by an automatic service and contain the latest available code without undergoing any form of quality control. We do not generally recommend users use these builds as they may contain serious issues and will not generally receive support.

:bug: Report bugs or other issues

If you're running into bugs or other problems, feel free to open an issue on our issue tracker. When doing so, we ask that you provide the following information:

  • The exact version of the Aether you are running, such as 1.10.2-1.0.0, and the version of Forge you are using, such as Please do not state “the latest stable release” or “latest Forge”.
  • If your issue is a bug or otherwise unexpected behavior, state what you expected to happen.
  • If your issue is a crash, attach the latest client or server log and the complete crash report as a file.
  • If your issue only occurs with other mods/plugins installed, list the exact mod/plugin versions installed.

Make sure to keep your issue's description clear and concise. Your issue's title should also be easy to digest, giving our developers and reporters a good idea of what's wrong without including too many details. Failure to follow any of the above may result in your issue being closed.

Our reporters and developers work around the clock, and will take care of debugging, labeling, and sorting your issues. However, please note that there are currently many open issues, and that it may take some time (up to a few weeks in the worst case) for your issue to be triaged and resolved. Typically, issues are resolved in order of severity and complexity, not the date submitted.
