Getting started

New to ConTeXt? Before installing you can see what you can do with it and try the live version on the garden.

Installation

ConTeXt comes from the Land of Flowers and resembles the flowers as well. It can make beautiful documents, but you have to use the fresh, latest version if possible. If you have TeXLive, teTeX, MikTeX, fpTeX or a similar system installed, ConTeXt probably already resides on your computer (try running texexec and check how old it is), if not you can download it from here.

If you're waiting for an interesting functionality in ConTeXt, the mailing list is probably the first place to turn to. However, minor bugs, typos in the documentation, Dutch leftovers in the source code, ... can be reported and collected here.
