    28 1. **Python**:  We recommend use of [https://www.continuum.io/downloads Anaconda Python], but we previously made extensive use of the older 32-bit EPDfree Python distribution, which can be  [https://s3.amazonaws.com/storage.enthought.com/installers/epd_free-7.3-2-macosx-i386.dmg the downloaded here] -- note this requires administrator privileges to install. Another choice is Canopy from [https://www.enthought.com/downloads/ Enthought downloads]
     281. **Python**:  We recommend use of [https://www.continuum.io/downloads Anaconda Python], but we previously made extensive use of the older 32-bit EPDfree Python distribution, which can be  [https://s3.amazonaws.com/storage.enthought.com/installers/epd_free-7.3-2-macosx-i386.dmg the downloaded here] -- note this requires administrator privileges to install.

    30302. **Install Subversion**: (For 10.7 or earlier, skip this step; if using anaconda, you can also use the "conda install svn" command as an alterative to this step.)  For Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8+) or later type svn into a terminal window ([InstallNotesMavericks as shown here]) to get a prompt from OS X to download and install this directly from Apple.
     
    4444* We mostly use Anaconda Inc.'s !Miniconda/Anaconda packages (see [https://www.continuum.io/downloads here for Anaconda Python]). With Anaconda, you will need to use the conda command to download wxpython and possibly other packages.
    4545
    46 * [http://www.enthought.com/products/epd_free.php Enthought Canopy] should also work, but be sure to the **Python 2.7** version of Canopy (because Canopy with Python 3.x does not have wxpython). We have not done any recent testing with Canopy.   
     46* [https://www.enthought.com/product/canopy Enthought Canopy] is also easy to install, but be sure to the **Python 2.7** version of Canopy (because Canopy with Python 3.x does not have wxpython). See [wiki:canopyMac219 Canopy install notes here].
    4747
    4848 * For Macs running really old versions of OS X, you will need a compatible Python distribution. There may be older versions of Anaconda or Canopy that will work. One option that should work is the [https://s3.amazonaws.com/storage.enthought.com/installers/epd_free-7.3-2-macosx-i386.dmg quite old EPDfree 32-bit Mac installer], provides everything one needs to run GSAS-II, except the interface needed for OpenGL graphics ([http://pypi.python.org/pypi/PyOpenGL PyOpenGL]) which is distributed with GSAS-II; GSAS-II will attempt to install this package for you when first started. Installation of EPD free from the .dmg is easy: click on the file to open it (that might happen automatically when you download it). In that new volume, you will see the EPD_free.mpkg installer. Click on that to start the installation process. It works best to run this from the account where you will run GSAS-II and supply the name of the admin account and its password when requested, as this will cause your login shell setup file to be updated so that directory {{{/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin}}} is in your path. (This is done by adding lines like this to file ~/.profile:
