Hello to all Intel Mac users,

why don't you go to my iDisk's public folder (in Finder --> Go --> iDisk --> Other User's Public Folder --> joerg.picard) and double click on gnubg.dmg and give it a try.

Please let me know whether it works. It works on my system, but I've got all the unix stuff installed and I'd like to find out whether this package is self sufficient.

gnubg has to be installed into your Applications folder and won't work from any other location. For any of you non-english Mac Users: I hope OSX uses the same underlying file structure independent of language so dragging gnubg into i.e. Anwendungen in German for instance will still result that it winds up in /Applications. I hope somebody can confirm this. Does gnubg automatically recognize your language? Did you have to set it manually? Did switching to another language work?

This version also installs a relational database, so please also test wether you can connect to the relational database and add matches etc.

Another thing to try is whether you can fork into a Python shell under View --> Python Shell.

This version should have everything, so make sure you're hearing sounds and can switch to and configure 3d boards.

This is version 0.16.something (latest snapshot as of last week) with a few goodies: - nackgammon mat files are automatically recognized and imported (for all you GamesGrid Nackgammon Blitzers) - when importing mat files, dates are imported based on date of file creation - when importing GamesGrid for Mac generated mat files, your rating is imported and player names are stripped of the comma + rating

Please respond back with problems, but also if everything works as advertised so we can get it out to the general public.

Oh, the first time you start gnubg, it takes a long time to launch. Be patient, it will be faster after that.
