New Version: 3.2 + New Web

16 Aug 2018

A new version of our retargetable decompiler has just been released! This is the second update since the 3.0 version, which was open-sourced in December 2017. One of the most significant changes in this release is a move from shell scripts to Python scripts, so Windows users will no longer need to install MSYS2 to run RetDec. Also, our home page has received a makeover :-).

New Version: 3.1

7 Jun 2018

We are proud to release a new version of our retargetable decompiler. This is the first update since the 3.0 version, which was open-sourced in December 2017.

New Version: 2.2

25 Aug 2016

We are proud to release a brand new version of the retargetable decompiler. Among its main features are a decompilation plugin for the IDA disassembler, implementation of a loader for all the supported file formats, and added support for decompilation of archives, object files, and files in the Intel HEX format.

New Version: 2.1.2

27 Jan 2016

The end of January brings a new version of the retargetable decompiler. It is mostly a bug-fixing release. However, we have also implemented several improvements (detection of compilers and packers, demangling of symbols, and emission of floating-point literals).

New Version: 2.1.1

11 Nov 2015

Starting from version 2.1, we will add features and fix found issues more frequently. The first sub-release, 2.1.1, has arrived today. Its main features are added demangling of symbols names and improved analysis of variables stored on the stack.

New Version: 2.1

5 Oct 2015

We are proud to inform you that we have made a new version of our retargetable decompiler! Among the main features of this release belong a new instruction-decoding algorithm, improved detection of C++ classes and functions, improved decompilation of programs using wide strings or functions from the Windows API, and improved annotations (comments) in the generated high-level language.

New Version: 2.0

1 Jun 2015

The beginning of June brings a new version of the retargetable decompiler. It is mainly oriented towards bug fixing. Apart from that, we have improved many of our optimizations (both in terms of speed and quality of the produced code), improved decompilation of specific binary files (e.g. ELF files containing only segments), and updated versions of the used C compilers. Also, our REST API is now considered to be stable.

New Version: 1.9

5 Feb 2015

Alongside with the new domain, we are proud to present you a new version of the retargetable decompiler. The biggest feature is an experimental REST API. It allows anyone to write applications that interact with the decompiler by sending HTTP requests. In this way, you can run a script on your PC that decompiles given files by using our decompilation service and downloads the outputs. Other changes include improved function detection, several usability features, and bug fixes.

We Have Moved!

5 Feb 2015

We are happy to announce that we have moved our website and decompilation service to a new address: https://retdec.com/. We recommend updating your bookmarks to the new domain (web browser, RSS client etc.).

New Version: 1.8

30 Sep 2014

The end of September brings a new version of the retargetable decompiler. The main features are the ability to decompile only the selected functions or address ranges from input binary files and various improvements in the quality of the generated code. Besides that, this version is mostly oriented towards bug fixing.

New Version: 1.7

30 Jun 2014

A new version of the retargetable decompiler has just arrived! It contains many new features and enhancements. Among the most important ones belong added support for decompiling files with no file format containing just raw machine code (like firmware), improved reconstruction of complex data types (such as arrays and structures), and enhanced generation of variable names and symbolic constants. We have also created a Twitter profile for our decompiler.

New Version: 1.6

31 Mar 2014

We are proud to inform you that we have made a new version of the retargetable decompiler! Among the main features of this release belong a preliminary version of complex data types reconstruction, experimental support for the PowerPC and PIC32 architectures, improved detection of statically linked code based on relocations, and reconstruction of code based on Linux system calls.

New Version: 1.5

15 Nov 2013

A new version 1.5 of the retargetable decompiler is now up and running! The leading features of this version are reconstruction of simple data types, reconstruction of instruction idioms produced by a compiler into a more readable form, addition of more options to the decompilation form, and several new optimizations of the generated high-level language.

New Version: 1.4

27 Sep 2013

We have created a new version of the retargetable decompiler. The main features of this version are a basic support of decompiling binaries created in Delphi, unpacking of files packed with several widely used packers and protectors, and various improvements of the readability of the decompiled code.

New Version: 1.3

17 Jun 2013

A new release of the retargetable decompiler has just been made. Among the main features of this release belong basic support of Windows API, new optimizations, more configuration options in the online decompilation form, and a newsletter.

New Version: 1.2

17 May 2013

Today, we have made a new version of the retargetable decompiler. The main features of this version are a base implementation of FPU (Floating-Point Unit) on Intel x86, decoding speedup, elimination of unreachable code, and renaming of variables.

New Version: 1.1

15 Apr 2013

We are proud to inform you that we have made a new version of the retargetable decompiler. As of this version, the decompiler supports decompilation of binary files in the MS Windows PE format for the Intel x86 architecture.

Online Decompilation Service

29 Jan 2013

We are pleased to introduce a new decompilation service. You can try our decompiler in your browser. Note that the service has some limitations (file size, target architecture, maximum decompilation time).

Support of Intel x86

10 Jan 2013

The decompiler now supports decompilation of Linux ELF binary files for the Intel x86 architecture. Hurray!

The Website Has Been Launched

5 Jan 2013

Welcome to our new website.

Second Architecture Is Supported

5 Oct 2012

The retargetable decompiler now supports the ARMv7+Thumb architecture. Intel x86 is coming soon.

First Architecture Is Supported

8 Dec 2011

The retargetable decompiler has been successfully tested on the MIPS32 architecture. The next target is the ARMv7 architecture.

Getting Started!

21 Sep 2009

Research in the field of retargetable decompilation has started.
