« on: December 22, 2011, 08:12:26 AM »
Newbie question!

Hi,
  Unfortunately BeerSmith 2 will not run on a power PC - only on Intel platforms running 10.5 (Leopard) or higher.

  While it is theoretically possible for me to go back and compile it for PowerPC one of the big problems I have is that I have no platforms available to test it.  I have several Macs but none are Power PC.

Thank you for your quick response!

I would be happy to test it for you!   Possibly a new market for 2.0 to expand.   :P

Thanks again, tho.
