Can We Download Orange Faster?

One day Blaž and Janez came to us and started complaining how slow Orange download is in the US. Since they hold a large course at Baylor College of Medicine every year, this causes some frustration. Related: Introduction to Data Mining Course in Houston But we have the data and we’ve promptly tried to confirm their complaints by analyzing them… well, in Orange! First, let us observe the data. We have 4887 recorded download sessions with one meta feature reporting on the country of the download and four features with time, size, speed in bytes and speed in gigabytes of the download.

Miniconda Installer

Orange has a new friend! It’s Miniconda, Anaconda’s little sister. For a long time, the idea was to utilize the friendly nature of Miniconda to install Orange dependencies, which often misbehaved on some platforms. Miniconda provides Orange with Python 3.6 and conda installer, which is then used to handle everything Orange needs for proper functioning. So sssssss-mooth! Miniconda Installer Please know that our Miniconda installer is in a beta state, but we are inviting adventurous testers to try it and report any bugs they find to our issue tracker [there won’t be any of course!

Fink packages now also 64-bit

Fink packages (we are using for system-wide Orange installations on Mac OS X) were updated to 64-bit. So if you were using 64-bit Fink installation you will be now able also to use Orange (and our binary Fink repository of already compiled packages). Just use this this installation script to configure your local Fink installation to use our binary Fink repository and add information about Orange packages (they are not available among official Fink packages).

Debian packages for Squeeze

We have updated our daily Debian packages to Squeeze (current Debian stable). You just have to reconfigure our package repository in your /etc/apt/sources.list to: deb http://orange.biolab.si/debian squeeze main deb-src http://orange.biolab.si/debian squeeze main Those packages are compiled for Python 2.6. You can read more about Debian packages in our old blog post.

Debian repository lives!

We have made still-experimental-but-probably-working Debian repository with daily built Orange packages. Currently without add-ons. To get access to those packages just add those two lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list (this file contains a list of repositories with packages): deb http://orange.biolab.si/debian lenny main deb-src http://orange.biolab.si/debian lenny main And then you can install Orange with this command: aptitude update aptitude install orange-svn Packages are not signed as they are made automatically so you will probably be warned about this.
