Freeway and MAC OS X Lion

Hello!

Do you guys know if the actual version of Freeway 5.5.7 is fully compatible with the new Mac OS X Lion just released today? For the price of US$29.00 I’m tempted to buy it but want to be sure I won’t have any issues.
Please let me know,

Regards,

Marcus

I am surprised nobody from Softpress has replied to this question but I would also like to know the answer before upgrading.

I all. I have a developers version of Lion running on a separate mac so i’ll test it for you tomorrow if no-one else comes back to you before then.

As soon as Lion is announced as a shipping consumer product (and not a
beta developer version hidden behind a Non Disclosure Agreement) then
Softpress, as registered Apple developers, will be legally allowed to
tell you this and many other things. Right now, they are not supposed
to even admit that Lion exists, lest they be sued, or kicked out of
the developer program, or both.

Apple themselves have now announced the official release of 10.7 in July and they have had a page dedicated to Lion on their website for months, so I don’t see how any developer can get in trouble for acknowledging information that is clearly in the public domain through Apple themselves i.e. the existence of Lion.

Many other well known developers have been releasing regular updates on their blogs saying how they are testing to improve compatibility between their products and Lion. This is useful for all concerned.

I would assume this is also the case here. It’s probably best not to be an early adopter if your workflow is important to you. Let others jump in and test the water first.

Yeah several other apps I use have been announcing it officially on their websites that it has Mac OS X Lion support.

I think it will work ok, but the bigger question will be is if Freeway 6, or future versions of Freeway, will be Intel only and thus booting out the PPC folks since Lion has no PPC support or emulation.

Interesting question Dan…

Hi guys,

Walter is right, we are under NDA and can’t discuss anything about 10.7. I can say that you shouldn’t hold back on upgrading because of Freeway as soon as it’s released, though.

Hope this helps,
Joe

Not only Intel-only, you can only upgrade from Snow Leopard because
it’s only available from the store. Which requires SL. You can
upgrade all of your machines for one payment, but the Apple site
implies that each one must do its own download. So each one must be
upgraded from SL.

If the rumors of updated Time Capsule base stations pan out, you may
be able to download once and install on many that way. I’d love to see
some kind of “edge caching” like that available to mere mortals who
don’t have Leopard Server or Snow Leopard Server humming away in their
basements…

I have one application that runs in Rosetta in my Intel-based Mac. It
is Eudora, one of my most-used applications, so that is going to be a
painful wrench. (No, Mail doesn’t even come close to Eudora’s raw
power.)

Ah well…

I’m still running 10.5 on my PPC Quad G5 with a 30 inch LCD display.
Nice machine.
I have an intel 17" MacBook Pro, no contest with which machine I want
to develop on.
But, PPC is going away fast, so I guess I’m looking at getting a new
intel desktop sometime soon.
Too bad.

[Laughs] Up until a week ago I was one of them. I have a beautiful G5 PowerMac (the last model of the series) but with PPC support disappearing faster than the rainforest I had to move on. Inevitable but still a shame because it’s a lovely brute of a machine.

You know, I skipped the entire G5 party. I lumbered along with a dual
1.2 GHz G4 for many many years, and finally broke down and bought an 8-
core Mac Pro about three years ago. I think it was seeing so much of
my work go to Rails, where getting Ruby and various gems to compile on
non-Intel hardware is such a chore, that pushed me over the edge. That
and the stunning speed increase.

$49 Lion Server is going to be interesting. You must upgrade from $500 Snow Leopard Server. So I wonder how they will handle future serial numbers? Hummmmmm?
