QGIS 3.0.0-3

QGIS 3.0.0-3 should fix the non-working GRASS problem. The key was my adding the "3" to the app name with a space, the GRASS internals didn't like that. So I removed the space - it's now The installer removes the contents of the original QGIS, but not the app folder itself, so you need to delete that from your Applications folder.

It also looks like the rebuild fixed the missing SAGA processing tools.

On to figuring out why GDAL tools do not work…

QGIS 3 Must use Python 3

Because QGIS links the python library, you must install the Python 3.6. You can't substitute another python 3 installation. Sorry, that's the way it is.

QGIS 3 is finally ready! As noted previously for GDAL 2.2, big packaging changes include minimum OS X Yosemite and Python 3. Also note that during installation it needs internet access to install the necessary Python modules. QGIS 3 installs as "QGIS", so it can be used alongside QGIS 2.

Currently it is missing the globe plugin, I'll work on adding that next. But it does include the new 3D features.

I've done little testing in my rush to get this ready. …argh, looks like the SAGA Processing provider is not working.

GDAL Complete 2.2 & Future Development

GDAL 2.2 is ready, along with all it's friends. For now, I only have the GDAL Complete package, no GDAL plugins or individual frameworks. I'll eventually package the GDAL plugins, but I think I'll not make individual framework packages.

This marks another major release change.

The minimum system is now OS X 10.10 Yosemite. This is partly due to the usual change in my development system and my needs, but also for a fundamental need for C++11 in some components (while C++11 support is available in earlier systems, it is not developed enough).

Also, it is now only 64-bit.

Finally, I switched away from using the system Python – the frameworks and upcoming QGIS 3 will use a user-installed Python 3.

All the frameworks are made so they don't conflict with earlier packages (even of the same version), but that also means they are not drop-in updates to the earlier packages.

QGIS 2.18.15-2 and -3

QGIS 2.18.15-3 fixes a long-broken SAGA and recently-broken Metasearch plugin. Also restored OTB functionality.
