    Intel Mac :: Quick Question...

    Level 7
      Morning folks,

      Now we're well underway with the Intel Mac switch I've been wondering as to
      how Intel Mac developers are coping, ie. any known issues with Xtras [such
      as Buddy], etc?

      I'm asking as I'm currently running both Windows and G4 boxes - but looking
      to combine the two through an Intel Mac - I'll be running either Parallels
      or Boot Camp for the Windows side of things!

      Any thoughts, opinions and/or advice from your experiences would be very
      gratefully received!!

      Many thanks in advance... Mark ;-)

          check this link from INM (copied from DIRECT-L list):

          Hello all,

          For those that are interested, we have just published a white paper
          on the new Intel-based Macs to help developers who are considering
          supporting this new platform.

          The paper offers an overview of the situation and some guidelines on
          what the transition will entail, including some special considerations
          for Director developers.

          It also mentions the official position from some of the main Xtra
          developers on their plans to convert their Xtras.

          A link to the paper and a brief outline are available on our homepage.
          http://www.INM.com

          Enjoy the read!

          Regards,
          Warren

            Hey there,

            Funnily enough I'd found that white-paper a few months ago as a result of
            being a registered INM user; but thanks anyway -- it's always good to spread
            it en mass for others to read!

            Rather than the perspective of an Xtra developer, or rather those closely
            tied with Macromedia/Adobe, I'm more interested in hearing the tales of
            woe-and-torture from end-user developers like the majority of ourselves as
            to their experiences [if any] of Director development under Intel Macs.

            I'm guessing many people will be waiting for Universal Binary versions of
            Director and/or the Mac Pro -- just surmising as I could be wrong of course!

            Anyway, if there are any current Intel Mac based Director developers out
            there please let me know how you're getting on!

            Many thanks, Mark ;-)
