Starting to catch up. GDAL 2.1.3 is ready. QGIS updates coming soon.
About the future… Due to changes in my development setup and the future QGIS 3, GDAL 2.2 and QGIS 3 will be a minimum OS X Yosemite (10.10). GDAL 2.2 will probably be 64bit-only also.
QGIS 2.14.8 and 2.18 are now available. GDAL updated to 2.1.2 and GEOS updated to 3.5.1. I also restored the speedups to the GEOS Shapely python module (it’s been missing because I was missing some Python development modules).
Postgres updated to 9.4.9. Along with PostGIS 2.2.2 and pgRouting 2.0.1.
I will try to update pgRouting to 2.2, but it is possibly a problem due to C++ library issues.
Sorry for the long wait. QGIS 2.16.2 is now available. And QGIS 2.14.6 has been promoted to LTR. Both now use GDAL 2.1 (included).
Finally starting to catch up. First up is a big GDAL 2.1 update (I skipped 2.0). Note that for end-users this will not be automatically used by other software like QGIS and GRASS. Next will be updating QGIS (new versions & to use GDAL 2.1).
Window memory is voodoo. The rules have changed again, and my carefully laid out window to show the order of installing everything gets alphabetized and meaningless.
New QGIS 2.8.3 installer with the installer packages themselves numbered for install order.
GEOS Framework updated to 3.5. Needed for PostGIS 2.2. PROJ Framework updated to fix linking problem with tools.
This is also the beginning of a system minimum update. GEOS and PostGIS now have a minimum system of Mt Lion (10.8), though Mt Lion appears to be now dead from the absence of a recent security update. I need to support Mt Lion for a short time at least, but I recommend at least Mavericks and in the near future I might shift the minimum to Mavericks.
I’ve made the installation of QGIS simpler, by including the GDAL and Matplotlib packages. For now this only applies to the long term support release (2.8), and I’ll probably only update the download when QGIS is updated, so the separate frameworks may be newer than what is packaged with QGIS. If I try to update the whole thing every time one part changes, it’ll just get messy. I also added a note to the first readme about installing multiple versions of QGIS, basically don’t.
One thing I found right away is the Yosemite upgrade killed my installed Postgres. I think Apple’s upgrade process did a search for certain postgres folders (for temporary files, no data files are deleted) and deleted them, probably assuming they were for their Postgres and that they would be reconstructed later in the upgrade process. I added some repair instructions on my Postgres page.
