We continue to compile for the Mac OS X cocoa frontend on both
(OS 10.5 leopard) and x86 (OS 10.6 snow leopard). The Continuous
Integration (CI) system uses two real mac mini computers as build
slaves as Mac OS X cannot currently be reliably cross compiled for.
One data point coming up:
I use MacOS 10.5.8 on an x86 iMac. The machine has an oldish NetSurf on it,
but I was actually getting fed up enough with slow performance from Firefox
to demote it to G+ and YouTube duties only and seriously try an updated NS
as my preferred Mac OS browser. (To date I've only ever made casual use of
it on the Mac platform.) But I also have VirtualAcorn, and an Arminix, and
NetSurf already is the preferred browser in those two cases, so I have ample
workarounds if you do decide to knock your old build environment on the
head. I did have to obtain an updated version of Xcode before NS would work
for me at all on the Mac.
But as long as I can get hold of the very last Mac build I'd be entirely
happy. I am already grateful for all the work you guys do.
