# Running Contur¶

Contur now has a first production release, 1.0.0 !

Check out the contur code from our repository at gitlab. The recommended Rivet release is Rivet 3.1.X.

git clone git@gitlab.com:hepcedar/contur.git

git checkout release-1-1-x

This is the latest bugfix of the release branch. If you need to use an older Rivet release you can try using

git checkout rivet-2.7-frozen

but this is pretty old and not recommended for long term use.

The README in the project overview provides some instructions. We also have a docker-based tutorial produced for various schools (YETI and MCnet) which is available here. To get some information about the available options, see contur --help.

(the tutorial needs updating for the release version)
