Compatibility Notes

  • Our Linux binaries are built on a Ubuntu (v6.06 LTS, aka Dapper) machine and as such they are unlikely to run anywhere else.
    • Note: If you are running Chandler on Linux and you are going to be running any of the tests we provide or developing, then you should make sure you have the French and Spanish language packs installed. Some of the I18N unit and functional tests reference the fr_CA and es_UY locales for testing. You will know if you need to do this if you see an error along the lines of "invalid wxPython locale" error that references the above two locales.
  • The OS X binaries have been tested on Panther (10.3) and Tiger (10.4) and are available as both PPC and Intel install images.
  • The Windows binaries have only been tested on Windows XP.


The official releases of Chandler by OSAF have gone through most testing and are the most stable versions of Chandler you can download.

The latest Chandler release is .
  • Linux
  • Mac OS X
  • Windows 2000/XP

Building Chandler

You probably don't need to build Chandler, but if you have to, see BuildingChandlerDesktop.

We would be interested in hearing of volunteers to add support for other systems, for example Windows 2000, FreeBSD and so forth.
