Hi all Mac OS users,

thanks to Massimo aka Epifanio, Snow Leopard is now officially a
tested platform for HomeRange_plugin, without compilation (except
QGIS, but it's not required):


see details of installation here:


feel free to report any other working configurations or problems.

all the best,

I don´t have time to spend on learning to make installer packages myself (my need for this is not high enough) so I hope there is somebody out there who have made an installer package. Anybody that can help?
