After a number of requests, I am almost ready to release an Apple Mac version of AlbumEasy.

As a first time Mac user, developing on a virtual Mac located somewhere in the cloud, I would feel a lot more confident if a few users could give the program a test run before I foist it on the unsuspecting public.

So if you are a Mac user willing to give it a try, please contact me either through the forum or via the contact page on my web site - the link is in my signature.

I am only looking for two or three people, preferably persons who are relatively computer literate, and even better if they are already familiar with AlbumEasy.

If all goes well, barring any unforeseen circumstances, I am hoping to have a general release of the Mac version within the next few days.

Thanks to the those who responded via private message, I have now contacted you individually.

I think that I now have enough volunteers so no need for any more.
Thanks,
Clive

re: AlbumEasy for the Apple Mac - looking for guinea pigs

After comprehensive testing by a number of people, I am happy that the Mac version of AlbumEasy performs as expected and would be ready for release if it were not for one significant bug.

This bug affects a fairly large percentage of users and manifests as blank Contents and Index tabs to the Help Window, making Help basically unusable. And as the Help documentation is a crucial part of the program, it needs to be fixed before this version can be released.

During the past week or so I have spent far too much time trying to find a fix, more time than what was actually required to produce the Mac version in the first place. It has been incredibly frustrating as there are so many other things I would have preferred to spend my time on, but eventually, I have identified the source of the problem. Unfortunately, however, it is in a 3rd party library used by the help system.

I have filed a bug report with the suppliers of this library, hopefully, they are able to fix it or provide a workaround sooner rather than later. But until they do I am unable to release the Mac version of AlbumEasy.

It is very disappointing that one small, but significant bug, and one which is beyond my control is solely preventing this release.
Clive
