New Download Service

Elasticsearch has been using Github’s static downloads feature as a means of distributing releases for both the core and its plugins for a few years now. Unfortunately, last week, Github stopped supporting downloads. We’ve been working the past few days to replace this functionality internally.

All of the links to elasticsearch core have been updated to the new site through We’re still migrating our plugins, so you’ll see those change in the next day or two. We are still working on a solution for third-party plugins.

The old assets will be removed tomorrow, so if you’re using any* links in your provisioning system please update them to the commensurate*.
