Important: since R 3.4.0 release we are now providing binaries for OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) and higher using non-Apple toolkit to provide support for Open MP and C 17 standard features. Please check the MD5 checksum of the downloaded image to ensure that it has not been tampered with or corrupted during the mirroring process.

For example type R 3.4.2 binary for OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) and higher, signed package.

Releases for old Mac OS X systems (through Mac OS X 10.5) and Power PC Macs can be found in the old directory.

Note: CRAN does not have Mac OS X systems and cannot check these binaries for viruses.

The latter two components are optional and can be ommitted when choosing "custom install", it is only needed if you want to use the R 3.2.1 legacy binary for Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) - 10.8 (Mountain Lion), signed package.

Contains R 3.2.1 framework, GUI 1.66 in 64-bit for Intel Macs.Apple has dropped the 'X' moniker from Mac OS in the release of Sierra.Apple may elect to change features at the last second, as it has done on countless operating system improvements before.As of the writing of this FAQ (Frequently answered question page), I've updated every Mac OS X version on an Intel Mac through 10.4.11 to 10.11 using the method of this FAQ.I have a Power PC Mac right now standing at 10.4.8, which I could upgrade to 10.4.11, except I have some old games which won't run on 10.4.11.The fact the update works at all is a testament to how well tested the software is.
