Installing SilverStripe Framework in conjunction with SilverStripe CMS:
The framework is automatically bundled with SilverStripe CMS. Just download the tarball or check out the code from GitHub, or if installing on Windows, you can use the easy-to-use Microsoft Web Platform Installer.
Installing SilverStripe Framework as a stand-alone framework:
Using SilverStripe Framework by itself currently relies on using code under development that is not yet ready for production use. You can access the Framework code from github.com/silverstripe/sapphire.
