Download and install
Packages for various Linux distributions are available for download here. They get updated on a semi-regular basis by yours truly.
Note that if your distribution has a
cadabra package, this
will contain a 1.x version, which is no longer being updated. The
packages available here will eventually make it into the
distributions as well, under the name
cadabra2, but that
may take a while. You can install versions 1.x and 2.x in parallel,
they will not interfere with each other.

Is your distribution not listed above? Either build Cadabra from source (see below) or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request a package for your distribution.
For the time being you will need to compile from source to install on OS X.
Build from source (Linux or OS X)
Alternatively, you can compile Cadabra from source yourself (not difficult). The source is distributed via github, see the kpeeters/cadabra2 repository for more details, including the pre-requisites.
You can build .deb and .rpm packages yourself when building from
source, by running
sudo cpack after a successful
build. Note that on rpm systems this requires the use
cpack3; the default cmake will lead to a broken package.
