The code can easily be imported as an Eclipse project or built using the provided build scripts ( for UNIX/MacOS X, build.bat for Windows). See the readme file contained within the zip archive for more. Prefuse requires the Java Development Kit (JDK), version 1.4.2 or higher.

prefuse alpha (release 2006.05.26)

 - source zip (.zip), 3.0mb

The previous release of the toolkit. New users should download the beta release instead.
