Can you help me please?
People new to Mac OS X should know that a *.dmg file is an image file similar to a hardware storage
like USB sticks or a harddrive. When mounting such an image (opening the *.dmg file in Finder) you will see the files or app bundles included in such an image.
So opening or mounting OpenCPN_4.0.0.dmg you will see the app bundle OpenCPN.app in the opened window which has to be dragged or copied to the application folder.
Sadly OpenCPN has to be installed this way for Mac OS X while the newer plugins comes now with an installer which makes things easier for people not knowing how Mac OS X works. I suggest to distribute the next release of OpenCPN with an installer also.
