[Numpy-discussion] Naming of OS-X binaries
Tue Jul 28 11:38:34 CDT 2009
I just went to get the latest stable build, and found that there was
this for Python 2.5:
However, as far as I can tell, that is really built for the python.org
framework build of python, which works on 10.3.9 and above, not just
10.5. I do know that it works on a 10.4 PPC machine.
In fact, if I see "10.5" in the name, I'm likely to assume that it is
built for the Apple-supplied python2.5, which came with 10.5
It really should be re-named. Maybe something like:
If you want to be compact.
As long as someone is taking the trouble to build a binary, people might
as well be able to know they can use it!
I know, the world of multiple builds for OS-X is still a mess. SIGH.
