Occasional 'release' packages are also created from time to time and are available from this site. Packages are only built for Windows and Macos. To build monkey2 for Linux you'll need to build from the github source.

The packages includes a custom IDE written in monkey2 itself, however if you're on Windows you might also  want to check out the 3rd party Mollusk IDE here.
