Latest release

The latest and recommended version of Nix is 1.7, released 11 April 2014. The quickest way to install it on Linux and Mac OS X is to run the following in a shell (as a user other than root):

$ curl https://nixos.org/nix/install | sh
This script does require that you have sudo access to root (since it needs to create the directory /nix). See the manual for more information.
