Important note about versions and compatibility

Most of these kits contain so called “fire and forget” scripts (mostly Python and a few Perl). This means that Modo will use these scripts only when you actively “call” them inside the app. They are not “running” in the background. Therefore these scripts do not have to damage or harm Modo by the simple fact of being installed. In addition, most of them don’t have to stop working with the following versions of Modo (with some uncontrollable exception here and there)

In short: install and try without fear whatever your Modo version is. The worse what can happen with some of them is that they stop working, nothing more.
