Switch to Conda-Forge for Installing Gemini Data-Reduction Software

January 26, 2023

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) has recently announced that it will end support for the main Astroconda channel, which is also used for installing Gemini data reduction packages, on 1 February 2023.

We have been working for the past few weeks to ensure that dependencies of Gemini IRAF and DRAGONS 3.0 can be installed using conda-forge, in place of STScI's Astroconda channel and Anaconda's ‘defaults’,, in conjunction with our existing channel. Please see further information and instructions in the announcement from 12 January at
