Morpheus 2.2.6

This version of Morpheus is not the latest one. Click here to get the newest Morpheus release.

This is the sixth bug fix release of the 2.2 series, including added support for ARM-based Apple M1-equipped Macs. A detailed introduction to the new installation routine via Homebrew can be found in this blog post.

For an illustrated overview of the Morpheus 2.2 series, see this blog post or check out the changelog for details.

Note to Mac users: Because required Qt5 libraries have not yet been ported to the M1 architecture, the documentation built into the GUI currently has a different appearance on newer Mac hardware.
