Python users of version 1.0 and below needed to install manually some dependencies, e.g., Python headers and a Fortran compiler.

Starting from version 1.1, wheel distributions are available on PyPI for Windows, Linux, and macOS. The wheel distributions are generated automatically using GitHub Actions. Users do not need to handle the dependencies anymore as long as they install PDFO via PyPI with Python 3.7 or above.

Version 1.0 of PDFO could not be installed on Windows for Python 3.8 and above, because the most recent version of Intel Distribution for Python supports only Python 3.7.

The latest versions of Python are supported on Windows by version 1.1 and above.

April 19, 2020

Version 0.9 does not support 64-bit Python on Windows because F2PY does not work well with MinGW-w64.

64-bit Python is supported by version 1.0 and above on Windows.
