Downloading Vega

Vega binaries are available for download from ​

There are some known installation issues with the Vega beta that may affect some Linux and Windows users.

See RunningVegaOnLinux or RunningVegaOnWindows for information if you encounter problems with the vanilla install.

We will address these issues in the coming release.

Signature Verification

Vega releases are cryptographically signed to help verify the authenticity of the release. The signature can be verified using GPG from the command line by following the steps outlined in this section.

To verify a signature, the signing key must first be download and imported. The key can be obtained at ​ It is then imported into the GPG keyring as follows:

$ gpg --import subgraph.asc
gpg: key 25208C7B: public key "David Mirza Ahmad <>" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1  (RSA: 1)

The signature can now be verified. In the following example, we'll verify the signature for the 64-bit version of Vega for Linux. The file ending with the .zip extension is the Vega release and the file ending with the .asc extension is its signature.

[dma@arbiter VegaBuild84]$ gpg --verify
gpg: Signature made Sat 06 Apr 2013 08:22:55 PM EDT using RSA key ID 25208C7B
gpg: Good signature from "David Mirza Ahmad <>"

As you can see on the second line of command output in the above pane, GPG verified the authenticity of the downloaded release of Vega.
