I use OS X and agree with David. New users should start with 2.6.x and
wait while 2.7 matures.
Version 2.6.1 was the best all-around release of Rev in the last three
years. "In my experience" 2.7 was one of the worst.
The missing documentation chapters, crashes when accessing the Table
panel on the Inspector, etc. etc. affect all platforms. The automatic
changing of creator codes and file types affect OS X users (especially
the changing of creator codes which are not an issue on Windows or
UNIX). Changing the appearance of previously created stacks from OS X
to OS 9 may or may not be exclusively an OS X problem.
2.7 promises to be very good when it is ready. I don't believe it is
PS Remember the last meeting in Monterey when we asked for two updates
that did nothing but fix bugs? That seems, in hindsight, to have been a
very good suggestion. 2.6.8 could have been awesome!

Subject: Re: 2.7 bugs
Your remark is a *little* off the mark, I think and I'd hate to see it
lying around without comment for newbies and investigators to stumble
First, as far as I can tell from reading this list and other
the problems with 2.7 are almost exclusively with the Windows version
IDE. OS X works pretty nearly flawlessly (allowing for the fact that all
software has bugs) and apps built in it for delivery on Windows also
Second, the problems with 2.7 are apparently confined to some specific
of functionality, so that there have been many reports of folks using
Windows without serious problems as well.
So a fairer statement might be, "Enough people, including me, have found
enough bugs in 2.7 for Windows that we've stopped using it and reverted
2.6.1 until a more stable release is issued."
