Installing Previous Releases of Newt

This page shows you how to install previous releases of newt for Mac OS, Linux, and Windows.

Mac OS

You can install previous releases of newt using mynewt-newt@X.Y Homebrew formulas, where X.Y is a version number.

For example, if you want to install newt 1.0, run the following commands:

$ brew update
$ brew install mynewt-newt@1.0

Note: This is a keg-only installation. newt 1.0 is installed in /usr/local/Cellar/mynewt-newt@1.0/1.0.0/bin but not symlinked into /usr/local/bin.

If you need this version of newt first in your PATH, run the following commands:

$ echo 'export PATH=/usr/local/Cellar/mynewt-newt@1.0/1.0.0/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bash_profile
$ source ~/.bash_profile

You can also manually symlink into /usr/local/bin as follows:

1. Unlink newt if you have the latest version of newt installed:

$ brew unlink mynewt-newt

2. Link mynewt-newt@1.0 into /usr/local/bin:

$ brew link -f mynewt-newt@1.0


1. Download the binary:

Version Download
1.0.0 newt_1.0.0-1_amd64.deb
1.1.0 newt_1.1.0-1_amd64.deb
1.2.0 newt_1.2.0-1_amd64.deb
1.3.0 newt_1.3.0-1_amd64.deb

2. Run the sudo apt-get remove newt command to remove the the current installation.

3. Install the package. For example, run sudo dpkg -i newt_1.0.0-1_amd64.deb to install newt 1.0.0


1. Download the binary:

Version Download
1.1.0 newt_1_1_0_windows_amd64.tar.gz

2. Extract the file:

  • If you previously built newt from the master branch, you can extract the file into your $GOPATH/bin directory. Note: This overwrites the current newt.exe in the directory and assumes that you are using $GOPATH/bin for your Go applications.

    tar -xzf newt_1_1_0_windows_amd64.tar.gz -C $GOPATH/bin
  • If you are installing newt for the first time and do not have a Go workspace setup, you can extract into /usr/bin directory:

    tar -xzf newt_1_1_0_windows_amd64.tar.gz -C /usr/bin
