OS X: Mac OS X will see an official installer shortly after release
with all components
Linux: We expect Linux packages for different distributions. Gramps 4.0
will only work on distributions released since October 2012, use
virtualbox for older distributions. Some optional dependencies are not
available yet on most distribution at the time of release. If you want
those, you need to install them from source, see Ubuntu derivatives
walkthrough in the installation guide for these. Specifically for
Ubuntu derivatives spell checking, geography view and exiv image data
require installation of source components.
Windows: Much work has been done the last months to obtain the stack
needed for Gramps on Windows. A first AIO installer is available on
the download page.
See the Changelog for more details.
