Thanks to the developers who are working on this port!
Some notes as Mac-ish geek:
1) No way to hide the application. I can minimize it but I hate that, and would prefer to hide it completely. For now I just stuff it on another desktop workspace.
2) The "About" function in the Application menu doesn't show any info. Makes the program seem a bit fishy to the uninformed. Took me a while to notice there was a separate Help -> About that worked.
3) In the Bitcoin Application menu there is a Preferences option, which doesn't function. The "Settings" menu entirely should technically be accessible via this location instead of in its own application in order to conform with Mac application desktop usability standards (i.e. what most users expect). Not a huge deal for now.
4) You can eliminate the File menu entirely, as there is a Quit option in the Application menu (the "Bitcoin" menu).
These small interface changes would make the app fit in to the average Mac user's desktop quite nicely. I am VERY impressed by the speed of this version vs. running it in WINE as I have been on my iMac.
For what it's worth, it is not runnable on my PPC G4 tower, maybe instead of being bundled as a Universal binary it can be bundled as an Intel binary only, if PPC is not going to be supported. (Why would it..)
These are not criticisms at all just observations!
I love that there is a native app coming to the OS X platform. I can't wait for the iPhone app ;-)
PS: I created a forum account several weeks ago and was lurking, and reading the updates, but my account got deleted! Probably I looked like a spammer to the forum admins. So here is proof that I am not.
Disk image: http://heliacal.net/~solar/bitcoin/Bitcoin-MacOSX-universal-svn-75-20100419.dmg
Installation: Run directly from disk image or drag to Applications folder
I have not tested ppc so it probably doesn't work. I got it to run on 10.5 and 10.6 64-bit Intel though.
This is based on svn but the daemon/commandline mode isn't working yet, only the GUI.
Please post any problems. If it crashes I'll try to help but screen shots, logs or crash dumps might be needed to figure it out.
