Here you can download gHowl_r46 for Grasshopper ***0.7.x and 0.8.x***. This is technically our third public release of the components, though the first two have been under a beta testing stage. This release fixes a few issues and adds some functionality not found in previous versions. We have included examples for various applications. If you have any questions or have issues using the gHowl components, please let us know. Please remember to have Open Office
installed for the spreadsheet components.
*** Tested with GH 0.7.0057. Reports show that gHowl does not appear for GH 0.7.0055. We will sort out a compatible version for 0.7.x with the latest release. Works well with 0.8.0001.***
