Just use the direct download link on the Bitbucket page and you'll get a simple zip-file with the full source code, ready to build with your choice of free or commercial development tools such as Visual Studio or Xamarin Studio. With Xamarin Studio you can also choose to develop AxCrypt in Windows, just about any Linux distribution and Mac OS X.

Using Mono and the various products from Xamarin with the Mono Framework being the key, it's now possible to leverage AxCrypt functionality into just about any kind of software or app in Windows, Android, Linux, OS X and iOS.
