Re: [ferret_users] Announcing the official release of PyFerret and Ferret version 7.4 for Linux and OSX

As we are discussing conda and pyferret, I have a question to ask. Will the conda update of pyferret 7.4 be also using libpng1.5? When I create a conda environment with libpng15, pyferret works but packages like seaborn and statsmodels refuse to install without upgrading libppng1.5 to 1.6.

I hope to have an update soon to the conda build so that it will use version 7.4.  But I need to work with Filipe on that, especially for the Mac OS X build.  

And yes, a Homebrew recipe would ideal for Mac OS X, as that is how I create this package.  Doing this would use your own Homebrew .dylib libraries instead of the ones packaged up in the .tar.gz file and accessed through the DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable (defined in the pyferret script).

Hi Olivier et al.

Is there any chance that Pyferret 7.4 will be available through conda on Mac OS X ? 

If any effort is made to produce a package for a modern packaging system (I mean, something beyond .tar.gz), I would say homebrew is better for Mac users because it would install both PyFerret and classical Ferret with a single command.  But I admit I don't know how homebrew and conda interact.
