The Snow Apps get their first revision
Category : Technology/SnowAppsRevision1.txt
I've made a few tweaks to the Snow Leopard apps and bumped up their versions by one point release. MailServe Snow becomes 4.1.1, DNS Enabler Snow 4.0.1 and WebMon Snow 4.0.1.
I had also built them using the new Clang compiler on Xcode, which is supposed to produce faster, more optmized code. There's also a new Static Analyzer in Xcode and running it, I caught one non-obvious memory leak in the apps that in all honesty I would never have spotted on my own.
So the platform is in a healthy state and there's much to look forward to, coding for the Mac. And iPhone.
But for now, I'm still watching these three apps and trying to finish the BIND Views feature for DNS Enabler.
Then I need to get Maven and Luca really updated for Snow Leopard. Right now, they're not truly Snow Leopard applications. The ones I've released were compiled on a Leopard machine with the version check removed. But once you set them up to use the Snow Leopard API, you get a huge number of errors for everything. So I can't even get them built. It'll take me some time to pick my way through these.
So, it's not easy to build a Snow Leopard application. Lots of work still to come.
