Hi everyone,

The conda-forge package for cctbx is now available. There are 2 packages,
"cctbx-base" includes the base code and "cctbx" which includes "cctbx-base"
and adds "wxPython", "PySide2", and "ipython". The commands for installing
cctbx into your conda environment are

conda install -c conda-forge cctbx


conda install -c conda-forge cctbx-base

If you want to use Jupyter Lab, you can now easily do this with

conda install -c conda-forge cctbx-base jupyterlab
jupyter lab

The existing documentation will be updated to reflect the easier
installation procedure with conda.

After installing the conda package, you can also run some of the tests (in
an empty directory) with

libtbx.run_tests_module module=libtbx module=cctbx nproc=<nproc>

I do know of a few issues that I want to fix in upcoming releases, but
please submit issues to https://github.com/cctbx/cctbx_project with steps
to reproduce the error.
