The August newsletter proffered a working RM7 using the current codeweaver wrapper to finally address long-time mac issues within a week. Any news on this 3 weeks later?

 

I won't bother to ask about the mythical native mac version.

It hasn't passed beta testing, so it was returned to CrossOver development. We were hopeful but it just shows another reason why we don't like to give deadlines for releases.

I guess I'm a pretend beta tester for RootsMagic.

 

I used to work for a software development firm, so I know one "deadline" was "Thursday". You just didn't mention which week.

 

Hahahaha on the "mything mystical native Mac Version ™".

 

My complementary Win 10 Enterprise under VirtualBox poofs in about 86 days, so I'm hoping the Mac OS version is released sometime between now and then. The RM7 that runs under VirtualBox and Win10 Enterprise doesn't seem to fair much better than the current Mac-based version. Weak monolayer SQL and the usual FamilySearch interface hickups/lockups.

Renee:

 

Thanks for the update. Users become less restless when they know why. I thought my "success" with using Codeweaver's 17.5 wrapper was too good to be true and it apparently was.
