    Mac Version News

    @DarkDragon , @Gleeok , @Saffith

    I finally procured a Mac to use. It is an Early 2008 Mac Pro (details).

    At present, it has no HDD, and the video card in it cannot be used with 10.6, so i will be ordering a video card for it (factory type), and a SATA drive, then installing 10.6.

    It is on this system that I intend to do Mac builds.

    The first hurdle, will be in building Allegro, then our other libs, then ZC itself.

    @Saffith : Should I use code::blocks, or something else? Please remind me what you used, as I would like to minimise dependency compiling. I would like to compile Allegro in whatever compiler I use for the other libs that we already have, if possible; but I may need to compile all of them from scratch.

    I also plan to port ZCL to OSX--Lazarus exists for OSX--and to add some Mac-specific config options.

    I'm not sure how painful the process will be, but at least I have a start on the HW.

    Last, I will be buying that software that I mentioned months ago, to package ZC as an 'installer' for Mavericks and above.

    Is there any versions to download for Mac that are not the release candidate that is posted on the downloads page?

    2.50.2 for Mac is on the right.

    I am sorry I did not clarify myself better, so I will try to explain my question again. I was looking for the Mac version that is not on the download page. I was trying to find the most recent beta version for Mac, or is the only version the one on the download page, please let me know, thanks.

    We don't have any dedicated MacOS X dev at this time, so, Max builds are likely to be last in any series, after Wim and Linux (for which we do have core devs).

    Win builds will be in release form before Mac builds go into Beta, most likely, because of the work involved with making (or attempting to make) them. I pretty much want to sort out a build into release form, or close to release form, before needing to worry about fixing stuff for it on another platform because that's technically its own beta chain.

    If you want the current Win build, at the time of this writing, it is:

    2.55, Preliminary 13 (Alpha 1 Candidate)
    Changelog
    Download (Minimal, Win32, 36MB)


    Perhaps try that with Parallels or similar? (WINE doesn't work.)
