With the impeding arrival of both Mac OS 10.6 and Windows 7, we have decided to begin phasing out support for Mac OS X 10.4 and Windows 2000. So, as of version 1.3 of HemoSpat – to be released Q4 this year – Mac OS X 10.4 and Windows 2000 will not be supported. [Note: HemoSpat v1.3 may actually still run on Windows 2000, we just won’t be supporting it. It definitely will not run on Mac OS X 10.4.]
The reason for this is for each release of HemoSpat we have to test across all versions of the OSes we are supporting. Currently that includes Mac OS X 10.4 PPC, Mac OS 10.4 Intel, Mac OS 10.5 Intel, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. When we eventually add Mac OS 10.6 and Windows 7, the testing time for each release goes through the roof! Phasing out the older versions will allow us to focus our work on the main product.
