Over the last few weeks and months, a few things came together that make Shogun both a lot easier to install, and a lot faster!
EDIT: While I was writing this post, Viktor leaked some of the results. I should work faster

Easier installation: conda integration & windows
Viktor recently made this work under windows as well (not easy! yet only C++ interface, but this will change soon). Check his StackOverflow post if you want to give it a try. After the years and years of cryptic installation procedures these things hopefully make Shogun more accessible for new users. Thanks again Dougal!

How did we make Shogun faster? Let’s take a little peak under the hood!
