The recommended installation method for signac-flow is via conda or pip. The software is tested for Python versions 3.8+ and signac versions 1.3+. The signac framework uses the NEP 29 deprecation policy as a guideline for when to drop support for Python and NumPy versions, and does not guarantee support beyond the versions recommended in that proposal.
