Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

sailorF54....

Well, not exactly the end of the story...

If there is enough demand for Snow Leopard support, this could be re-instated as a special project.

I am not a regular Mac user, and don't follow Mac developments very closely. So I don't really know how many users are still on 10.6...

Any comments?
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

It should have mentioned at the download page that Snow Leopard is not supported same as Windows 95. However OS updates for Mac are free and there is no reason not to update the OS if the machine is not too old.

Gerhard....

Good points. Many may have old Macs, I think. And they still work fine for what they are on SL.

I have a Mac Mini that is too old for 10.7+, and trying to decide if there is any use for it. I don't know what else I could do with it except make a backup OpenCPN box in case my primary fails.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

I have updated the download page to show the minimal OS X version required.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

When I follow the link to the download page I see version 3.3.2 instead of 4.0.
Could this be due to my old MacBook being 10.6.8?
I thought I read that OCN will work on an Ipad. I haven't been able to find it on the app store.

darylat...
You follow the link from where exactly and it takes you where exactly?
Anyway, OpenCPN 4.0.0 will not work on your OS X version, sorry.
We never announced an iPad version. For a simple reason: It does not exist.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

Informations about compatibility of Macs for Mavericks and Yosemite are here:
OS X Mavericks Compatibility Info and System Requirements @ EveryMac.com
and here:
OS X Yosemite Compatible Macs and System Requirements @ EveryMac.com

iPad has another operating system than Mac with OS X, it is called iOS. Although the grafic system of OpenCPN called wxWidgets is supported for iOS too due to the restrictions of Apple Store no one made an iOS version right now.

Thanks Dave
I've posted the question on a major French forum (Hisse-et-Ho): Is there a number of potential O users still on 10.6 Snow Leopard ?
I'll let you know...

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

This is absolutely correct. Then you click "Browse all files" and get to the 4.0.0 version.
Or you simply get it directly from Download OpenCPN | Official OpenCPN Homepage

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

Don't know if anyone else had this issue but....

on the download page, there was a banner ad with a "download" button that didn't looked like the actual download button. Turns out it was nasty malware.

I ran malwarebytes and it cleaned everything up, but not until installed 5 or 6 "programs" that wouldn't uninstall and making my browser go haywire.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

Hello,

For those using a Mac with Snow Leopard and who can't or don't want to upgrade their OS, why not a link to the latest available version on OpenCPN downloading page ?

Jean
