Posted on 27-10-2017 , by: admin , in , 0 Comments

Anaconda, the Python language distribution and work environment for scientific computing, data science, statistical analysis, and machine learning, is now available in a broadly revised 5.0 edition.

Version 5.0.1, released this week, addresses some minor bugs and adds useful features, such as updated R language support, that weren’t available in the original 5.0.0 release.

Where to download Anaconda 5.0.1

The community edition of Anaconda Distribution is available for free download directly from Anaconda’s website. The for-pay enterprise edition, with professional support, requires contacting Anaconda’s (formerly Continuum Analytics) sales team.

Anaconda 5 recompiles everything for speed

The Linux and MacOS versions of Anaconda 5 have been built with new compilers: GCC 7.2 for Linux and Clang 4..01 for MacOS. This extends the speed benefits of those compilers to users of earlier editions of those OSes—to MacOS 10.9 Mavericks and CentOS 6.
