For the users who only need the generic MILP solver or the SYMPHONY callable library to be used in their custom applications, there are binary distributions released for different compilers and platforms. Each distribution consists of an executable and libraries built from the source code of SYMPHONY version 5.2.3. It is important to note, however, that the pre-compiled binaries are missing some very useful functionality because of the fact that we are unable to distribute code linked to libraries licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). There are also a number of other potentially useful configurations (such as the parallel version) that we do not distribute in binary form. Building from source should be easy in most environments and will give you more flexibility. See Section 2.2 for more information on additional functionality available when building from source.
