Download bpp3.3.tgz (source code for all platforms, including executables for Windows. Don't let Internet Explorer change the file name.)
Download bpp3.3.macosx.tgz (source code and executables for mac osx 7 and later)
Please read the documentation in the package (bppDOC.pdf) before using the program. The following paper includes a tutorial that works for bpp 3.1 through 3.3.

If you have questions, after having struggled through the tutorial, please post them at the google bpp discussion site.
BP&P replaces the old program MCMCcoal, which implements the Bayesian method of Rannala & Yang (2003) and Burgess & Yang (2008). Bo Xu has written a graphics user interface for BPP, called bppX. The compiled executables are here for Windows, Mac OSX, and linux. You install (unpack and compile) the current version of bpp first. Then unpack the GUI bppX. Then go to Function-Configuration to specify the folder name for the bpp files.
The program 3s implements likelihood ratio tests to test for gene flow between two closely related species. Click on the link above for more information.
