A fine chap by the name of Philbywhizz has been in #pioneer over the last few days asking questions about a secret project. Today he got there - Pioneer running on OS X:

Its still early but hugely exciting! Patches and docs should hit the repository soon. I'm going to try and get a nightly build up for it if I can. Hopefully we can get Alpha 10 on all three major platforms 😀

Code is now merged. See COMPILING.OSX for instructions. In the future this will become easier but it will do for now.

Compiling pioneer the 'GNU' way, using autotools is the easy way (most of the work was already done), but doesn't make it easy to distribute the binary.

Now that it is working, the next challenge is to compile and build pioneer as a cocoa application rather than the GNU way, ultimately providing an pioneer.app and a .dmg file (which makes distributing a binary so much easier).

I have been able to successfully compile and build up a 'cocoa' style OSX application bundle, so the next binary release (Alpha 10) we should be able to have an OSX binary to go with it.

Saves having people to mess around gathering the right libraries (it is all bundled with the app).

Happy days! 🙂

Awesome work, congrats!

Just out of interest, how many forum lurkers will play the OS X version of Alpha 10 when it hits? And how many of those haven't played before because they couldn't/wouldn't play the Windows or Linux version?

Fyi, the XCode project files have just been checked in. If you know what that means then its time to get building and playing!
