OMC 2.0 preview 11 is available at:
See release notes below.
Preview 10 introduced more wrinkles than expected after some Cocoa rewrites.
This release should smooth most of them. I am aware of a couple of really
minor issues still remaining and I will try to fix them before final
release. Other than that, this is really close to release candidate. If you
have been holding off testing of OMC 2.0, you should try now and if
something is broken for you, let me know ASAP.
The installation process has been changed completely. No more manual
installations or lightweight AppleScripts. It should be more reliable and
process should be familiar to Mac users. You comments about the new
installation experience are welcome. Installation is complicated enough that
we may need to have an uninstaller too.
[ BTW, Apple's PackageMaker for building installation packages is not
helpful at all. Any attempt to add Abracode.framework ends up with a crash
(too complicated framework?). Luckily, there is an excellent 3rd party
alternative named Iceberg and it produced this installation package without
any issues. Highly recommended. ]
The documentation will be updated and maybe some more examples as well.
Recent command submissions will be posted online as well.
