[ Project Page | Forum | Downloads ]

This Website hosts file downloads for the Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) project. These are official builds and are recommended for general usage unless otherwise stated in the file summary. Newer builds of specific CEF3 branches are available externally as described in the Automated Builds section. For additional information or help using CEF please visit the Project Page or Forum.

Binary Distributions

Binary distributions include all files necessary to build a CEF-based application. They are named following the form "cef_binary_X.Y.Z_platform.zip" where "X.Y.Z" is the version number and "platform" is the operating system. They are stand-alone archive files and do not require the download of CEF or Chromium source code. Binary distributions are provided for both CEF1 and CEF3 so pay attention to the version number (1.Y.Z or 3.Y.Z respectively) when selecting a file to download. More information about CEF1 vs CEF3 can be found here. More information about versioning and the CEF build process can be found here.

Symbol Files

Symbols for debug and release builds on Windows and release builds on Mac OS X are provided as a separate download. Symbols for debug builds on Mac OS X and Linux are included in the binary distribution as part of the CEF dynamic library. At this time we only provide symbol files for the compiler version used to create the binary distribution. Symbol files follow the same naming structure as binary distributions but include the word "symbols" at the end of the file name.

Documentation

Documentation in HTML form for binary distributions is provided as a separate download. Current API documentation for CEF3 can also be viewed online here.

Automated Builds

This download page is updated approximately once per release branch. Newer builds of CEF3 trunk and release branches are available at cefbuilds.com courtesy of Adobe. Automated builds may not be fully tested and should be used with caution.

Download List

Below is the list of files available for download. By default only the current versions are shown. You can also download older (deprecated) versions.
A tool for extracting 7z files can be downloaded here or via the package manager on most Linux distributions.
