Edge binaries are not intended for wider use; they're for developers to test new features and fixes as they are 'pushed' and passed through the CI. Follow these download links for Mac OS X 64 bit, Windows 64 bit and Linux 64 bit.
- In Cygwin and Git Bash on Windows, interactive password prompts (in
cf login) do not work (see issue #171). Please use alternative commands (
cf login) to work around this.
- API tracing to terminal (using
cf config --trace) doesn't work well with some CLI plugin commands. Trace to file works fine. On Linux,
CF_TRACE=/dev/stdoutworks too. See e.g. this Diego-Enabler plugin issue.
- .cfignore used in
cf pushmust be in UTF8 encoding for CLI to interpret correctly.
- On Linux, when encountering message "bash: .cf: No such file or directory", ensure that you're using the correct binary or installer for your architecture. See http://askubuntu.com/questions/133389/no-such-file-or-directory-but-the-file-exists
Filing Issues & Feature Requests
