Jalview Launch file (.jvl). This allows you to run the version of Jalview within an existing installation of the current release
original installer files (.exe, .dmg, .sh)
stand-alone executable JAR file (this will require you to have a separate Java installation)
JalviewJS javascript version of Jalview
source code tar archive (.tgz)
original installer files (.exe, .zip, .bin)
Java Web Start file (.jnlp) (no longer supported)
Java Applet instructions page (no longer supported)

We don’t support old versions of Jalview, but if you want to use an old version we recommend trying the JVL file first. Older application installations may have problems running on modern systems. If you’ve got data that only works with an old version of JalviewLite or the Jalview Desktop, or are trying to do something that doesn’t work on the new version, however, then it could be that you’ve found a bug!

Java Web Start and Java Applets are no longer supported in modern web browsers.
