PlayOnMac Final version !

Friday 10 April 2009 at 14:07

I am happy to announce the release of PlayOnMac's final version (1.0)

First, a quick presentation of PlayOnMac


PlayOnMac ?


PlayOnMac is a version of PlayOnLinux adapted for MacOS X
PlayOnMac allows to install applications made for Windows on a wac intel

What does PlayOnMac look like ?


Here are a few screenshots of the software

What Can I install with PlayOnMac


For now, you will be able to install a few applications in a few clics; applications such as Microsoft Office 2003 or Microsoft Internet Explorer

What do I need to use PlayOnMac ?


PlayOnMac has only been tested on Leopard for the moment. If you have an earlier version of OSX you will have to install X11
It is quite necessary to own a Mac Intel to be able to use PlayOnMac

How much does is cost ?


PlayOnMac is a free open source software.

Where can I find PlayOnMac ?


PlayOnMac is available on PlayOnLinux's download pagel

What more is there in this version compared with the beta 1 ?


- Great effort has been made in the integration of PlayOnMac in Max OS (there is only on python icon per window in the dock now).
- The WineVersion manager has been recoded for mac although as for now no other version that the basic one is available (patience, it will come)
- A lot of bugs have been corrected.
- For those who know how PlayOnLinux works, it is no longer bash that launches python but the other way round.
- PlayOnMac updates its repositories on its own when necessary (just like PlayOnLinux 3.4)

I think all has been said :)

PlayOnLinux 3.4

Friday 6 March 2009 at 18:43

Hello everyone,

Here is PlayOnLinux version 3.4

what's new?
- The manual installation will suggest you to open winecfg before each installation; allowing you to configure your profile as you want.
- The repository is automatically updated when it is changed. Therefore the button "update repository" will no longer appear on the tool bar.
- The "Automatic Execution" button has been moved to the Tool menu.
- POL_SetupWindow_prefixcreate was causing problems and so has been rewritten. The former version allowed to fix some issues in the Program Files so it has been kept under the name : POL_SetupWindow_oldprefixcreate will allows to create functional prefixes on older versions of Wine.
- The changelog will not be displayed when an application is launched
