Currently we support recent Win32 versions (XP, Vista) and Mac OS X, with most of our testing to date carried out on Leopard.

We are also in the process of removing unnecessary library files from the release versions. The current versions should work fine, but our aim is to reduce the size of these packages over time. In case you're wondering why we ship everything with GenGIS, our motives our twofold:

  1. It simplifies the acquisition process, as opposed to many iterations of 'go here - get this'.
  2. It also allows us to ensure that working combinations of the attached libraries can be used. Conflicts might otherwise arise between wx, Python, RPy2, and R.
