Tetrad IV Download Site
From this page you may launch release and development versions of Tetrad. For more information about Tetrad project or previous versions of Tetrad, see the Tetrad Project Page.
You must have Jave Runtime Environment 1.6 or higher installed on your computer. (The full SDK will of course do as well.) Instructions for downloading and latest Java JRE can be found at this link:
Tetrad IV uses Java Web Start to launch. If you install JRE 1.6 or higher on a Windows or Linux machine, Java Web Start will be installed for you automatically. On a 64 bit Mac, JRE 1.6 is available though system update.
Once you have a proper JRE installed on your machine, you can launch the version of Tetrad you want by clicking on the link below:
For other versions, peruse this directory:
Note: Tetrad will no longer be posted under JDK 1.5. The last version that will run under JDK 1.5 is 4.3.10-2, in the 'launchers' directory, above.

Also, if you'd like to look at an earlier build for some reason and know how to launch executable jars,* you are welcome to peruse our download directory.
Tetrad versions should be backwards compatible, but sometimes they aren't. For information about which version of Tetrad you are running and the version and date of last session you loaded in, select "Versioning Info" from the File menu. If you need a different version of Tetrad, go to the Launchers directory and double click its launcher, then reload the session.

Instructions on how to run the IMaGES/LOFS algorithm, these can be found here.
