Here is a collection of the formats currently used by the IGS. More details such as archive locations and file naming conventions are available via the data center navigation area.

RINEX v. 2.10 GPS and GLONASS observations, meteorological data, and navigation files
RINEX v. 2.11 GPS, GLONASS and Galileo observations, meteorological data, and navigation files. Additionally, the C2, L2C/L5 and Galileo codes have also been introduced.
RINEX v. 3.01 GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou (Compass), QZSS and SBAS, however, structure of the data record has changed significantly with the addition to detailed characterization of actual signal generation.
RINEX v. 3.02 Enhanced 3.01 to include: a new header message to specify the GLONASS code-phase bias; the existing GLONASS frequency to slot header message has been specified as mandatory and a new RINEX file naming convention.
