FWIW I am using 20.0 on OS X and can probably help even though I am quite
new to Lily pond I have much experience with building software. Would be happy
to contribute as this software is helping me out nicely in my composition work.
Let me know if and how I can help.
We probably need to figure out the best method to move forward and try to
consolidate resources around that method.
The current release mechanism doesn't work to produce new 64-bit Apple builds,
because they require the Apple SDKs and the license for the Apple SDKs requires
the use of Apple hardware. LilyPond development is open-source based, so there
is not a lot of enthusiasm for moving the main development tree to a
Marnen Laibow-Koser has built installable .app files for certain versions of
LilyPond. He has not updated the builder for newer versions. It would be
helpful to update the builder for newer versions.
Jonas Hahnfeld has been working on an experimental binary build that avoids the
complexities of GUB and avoids cross-compiling, that uses separate packages
for each system, thus enabling a user of MacOS to build their own binary.
IIRC, this system builds binaries, not .app bundles.
MacPorts has a successful build for LilyPond, although the last time I checked
it did not create an installable application (.app file).
Jacques Menu has a method for building installable LilyPond applications on
MacOS, which I assume means .app bundles. I don't know the details. I should
have followed up more with him on the details:
For me, personally, I'd prefer to see us follow up with either Marnen's or
Jaques's work (they may actually be very similar -- I'm not sure) so we can get
installable .app bundles, not just installed binaries. Installable app bundles
make it very easy to use different versions of LilyPond in Frescobaldi.
But any help would certainly be appreciated. It should be coordinated on the
lilypond-devel list, rather than the lilypond-user list.
