The latest version of EvoSuite is 1.0.5, released on 15/05/17. EvoSuite is compiled with Java 8, and should work on Mac, Linux, and Windows. The source code is released under the LGPL license, and can be found on Github at: Every time we make a new release, we validate it on the SF110 Corpus. That is a collection of more than 23k classes from 110 different open-source projects. Coverage results of this benchmarking can be found here (note, that webpage is several MBs big).


To run experiments with EvoSuite, or to integrate it with other tools, you can download a standalone executable jar that can be used from the command line.

  • Executable: evosuite-1.0.5.jar
  • Runtime test dependency: evosuite-standalone-runtime-1.0.5.jar If you compile (e.g., “mvn package”) the latest snapshot from the Git repository, then the executable will be in the “master/target” folder with name “evosuite-master-.jar”.
