Nimbus binaries

We currently have binaries available for Linux AMD64, ARM and ARM64, Windows AMD64 and macOS (AMD64 and ARM64).

You can find the latest release here: https://github.com/status-im/nimbus-eth2/releases

Scroll to the bottom of the first (non-nightly) release you see, and click on Assets. You should see a list that looks like the following:

Click on the tar.gz file that corresponds to your OS and architecture, unpack the archive, read the README and run the binary directly (or through one of our provided wrapper scripts).

We've designed the build process to be reproducible. In practice, this means that anyone can verify that these exact binaries were produced from the corresponding source code commits. For more about the philosophy and importance of this feature see reproducible-builds.org.

For instructions on how to reproduce those binaries, see "README.md" inside the archive.

N.B. These binaries are meant to run as a service. As such, they do not support the log-file option - duplicating stdout to a log file would complicate things. We recommend capturing their output (stdout and stderr) with a log rotation helper instead.
