TOPIC: Client for Mac OS X

Actually, one other thought..

Since we're talking GoGlobal for Unix, most of the people who are looking for this software may indeed be engineers and scientists who are perfectly fine running via an X client. Just a thought..

Jeremy,

Thanks for the input. It's entirely possible, and even likely, that there aren't really any cross-platform toolkits in wide distribution on OSX. A quick search brought up the BOINC (boinc.berkeley.edu) as a potential example of a program that uses a cross-platform widget toolkit. Any chance you might be able to download it and let me know whether it looks or feels any "different"?

Thanks,
Troy

Troy,

Gave it a try. So the window frame looks normal. What's unusual is that Preferences and Advanced View and these kinds of buttons are in the application window, where normally you would expect to find preferences as part of the drop-down menu from the bar at the top of the screen (under the application's name). It's entirely usable, though.

We have been able to run the Windows goglobal for Unix client under wine on Linux. With a little tweaking this should be possible on Mac also.

Hello..

Would still like a native client. The company I work for is switching to a new SSL VPN which is incompatible with OS X (and Vista, actually). This will stop my remote access via VPN+Remote Desktop (as well as other OS X users I know). IT intends to maintain external access for engineering via GOGlobal without VPN, which would allow us to do GOGlobal + VNC..

I will also look into wine - thanks, Dick.

A native Mac OS-X client, as well as an associated browser plug-in, is planned for version 4.0. Release is planned for mid-late summer. Stay tuned for preview / beta testing availability.
