Herbie Gluender reported in the imagej mailing list that IJ2 beta1 does not run on Tiger. Johannes noted some issues with the launcher that he is working on for beta 2. Once those issues are ironed out we should test on Tiger if possible

The real problem, of course, is that we cannot use Java 6 on MacOSX 10.5.

I tested current Fiji and it fails. The problem is that Retrotranslator is too old (and maybe other issues hidden by that one).

Yet another ticket blocked by not accepting uploads :-(

Support for Java 5, OS X Tiger, etc., using Retrotranslator, will not make it into beta7.

It appears that I had to make some changes to the Retrotranslator in Fiji so it would kick in for Java 5 (and translate Java 6 as well as possible...) :-(

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

I am really not interested in supporting Tiger at this point...
