For 64 bit Windows there is a binary installer available in the download section. There is also an outdated version for 32 bit Windows. To get up-to-date 32 bit binaries it needs someone maintaining it.
If you want to compile QMapShack for Windows have a look at "Compiling and Building QMapShack for Windows" in the source tree.
A binary bundle is available in the download section. The binary is build with compatibility for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and later. The build is done with the Xcode 7.0.1 and tested on OS-X 10.10.5 (Yosemite) and partly on OS-X 10.11 (El Capitan).
The application can also be installed through cask (homebrew addition). Installing homebrew and cask, if not already done:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" brew install caskroom/cask/brew-cask
Installing QMapShack (latest provided version):
brew cask install qmapshack
Update QMapShack to the latest version:
brew cask install qmapshack --force
Check out your distribution's package system. Probably there is a binary package already.
