KiCad OS X Binaries

EDIT: KiCad now offers pre-compiled official binaries, I recommend using them.

Earlier today I shared compilation instructions for KiCad on Mac OS X.

Most people are probably more interested in just getting the binaries and using them so here they are.

Click here to download KiCad revision 5247 (2014-10-31: Halloween edition!).

I built this version using my instructions. To install it, just de-compress the ZIP file and drag the package to your Applications folder.

You will also need to download the standard component library. Open a terminal and type:

$ cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/
$ git clone kicad
$ cd kicad && touch template/

Please let me know in the comments if you find this package helpful. I think it will not be long before the KiCad project has official binaries. In the meantime, I will update them if needed.
