  1. A new installation framework is being used for DTSA-II Jupiter release. This framework is intended to help Mac and Linux users stay with the most current version.
  2. This framework uses a Java program to install the desired programs in platform appropriate locations.
  3. Typically Java programs can be run by double-clicking the ".jar" file or through the command line "java -jar jarfile.jar" where "jarfile.jar" is the file containing the Java executable.
  4. The installer knows how to create links for Windows and Unix/Linux but not for OS X.
  5. Please provide feedback on the OS X and Linux/Unix install process as I don't currently have access to either of these platforms
