Leopard product readiness

With Leopard only 15 hours from release it’s time for a product status report:

Leopard-ready

The following products have received extensive testing on pre-release versions of Leopard and are expected to work with a high degree of compatibility. When Apple ships the final version to developers further testing will be performed to see if any further changes are required:

  • Synergy: the lightweight, robust, and feature-packed iTunes controller.
  • Install: simple and dependable installation solution for developers.
  • WOTest: open source Objective-C unit testing framework.
  • Wincent Strings Utility: open source localization helper tool for developers.
Beta-status

This product hasn’t been heavily tested with Leopard but conflicting reports have been received that it continues to work under the new operating system; others report that they’ve been unable to install it. When the Leopard final arrives further investigation will be undertaken.

  • WinSwitch: Fast User Switching menu replacement.
Coming soon

These products aren’t yet Leopard-ready but work is well on the way to completion (about 90% done) and so I hope to release Leopard-compatible versions within the next two to three weeks:

Unknown

The status of the following product on Leopard is unknown:

  • atosym: Address-to-symbol conversion aid for programmers.
All other products

There are a number of other products which aren’t specifically tied to the Mac OS X platform, and so should work on Leopard just as they did under Tiger:

  • Bansshee: protection against SSH dictionary attacks.
  • Walrus: object-oriented templating system written in Ruby.
