Chris decided to jump in the MacOSX development environment (pls don't
tell anyone or else he loses his card carrying Linux privledges) and
has crafted a first version of altBrowser for MacOSX. It's not yet
completed, but it is working (or so he tells me...I'm at WWDC right now).
So a quick question for those interested. We're pretty sure we're not
going to support the Mac before OSX. Is that a deal killer for those of
Also, Chris wants to create a Linux altBrowser as well.
Lastly, we've just completed Mac and PC zip externals for
compressing/decompressing to zip files / folders. We'll be hoping soon
to have something up for those interested.
btw, funny thing. Richard Gaskin and I are here at WWDC representing RR.
Richard saw the new dashboard presentation and decided that instead of
waiting until 2005, he'd whip up a version inside RR here at the show.
He just about completed it before time ran out..today.
I really feel for Konfabulator-- Apple's done their best to screw them,
and funny thing is how a lot of developers here think "Hey, it's good to
have competition!" Richard also previewed his Devolutions package which
he threatens to release almost as often as we do the Mac version of
altBrowser. It's really cool. I'm trying to persuade him to release the
beta at the Rev Masters Summit mid-July. Perhaps a few emails to
ambassador at fourthworld.com would help get the message across:-)
