HTCondor is currently available as a free download from the Internet via the World Wide Web at URL http://htcondor.org/downloads/. Binary distributions of this HTCondor Version 8.8.13 release are available for the platforms detailed in Table 1.1. A platform is an architecture/operating system combination.

In the following table, clipped means that HTCondor does not support checkpointing or remote system calls on the given platform. This means that standard universe jobs are not supported. Some clipped platforms will have further limitations with respect to supported universes.
