Testers wanted for Cinnamon Writer

I am looking for pre-alpha testers for Cinnamon Writer (CW). CW is a word-like WYSIWYG editor made for the amiga from the ground up. This version (1.0) will feature DOCX (load/save) compatibility, spell checking, images, textboxes, export to PDF and more.

I am looking for a dedicated and patient team to help me in with the testing. If you would like to apply, you can pm me here or comment in the thread.

However:

You should not sign up if:
- You just want to see the progress of CW - Pre-alphas are on purpose not end-user friendly. Better to wait until the pre-release versions are available
- Patience is not your virtue. (With a full-time job and two kids some bugs will probably not be fixed the same day they are reported)

You should definetely sign up if:
- You think it could be fun
- You use word, or similar, daily and you are used write and use complex documents - You have access to a mac. I develop on my laptop mac, which has much better portability, developer tools and raw CPU power than my amiga

I as beta-tester can get out all the shit from your soul till it will be bug-free. So if you wish normal tests for os4 version, count me it :) Through I do not have Mac, just usual x86 and x5000 with os4.

I mean, you use Mac just as a cross-compiler, or you want to make firstly Mac version and only after it will be fine port it to os4/mos/aros?

Whilst I won’t be applying due to work and too many other commitments, may I wish you success in this endeavour as will be nice to see an updated version of this programme on my X5000 when it appears 😊

Hi all

Thank you all for all your quick replies.
I see that one of my lines missed a return. It is important at this stage that the testers have access to a intel based Mac. The functionality to be tested is OS agnostic, and it would save me a lot of trouble not to be forced to do cross-compiling for every iteration. I know that rule out a lot of good help :(
The OS X version of CW consists of a very slim GUI on top of the CW core. The GUI completely crap, but it is not what need to be tested right now

What version of macOS is needed as a minimum? I have an old Snow Leopard model (10.6) that I could dump the Linux off of temporarily.

It 'should' work on Snow Leopard. It requires very little from OS X to run. If you wouldn't mind the trouble of setting up your Mac temporarily let me know and I will send you further instructions :)

I do have an XCode setup but it's on a 10.5 PPC Mac so likely too old to be useful. Even though the OS4 port has PPC. I also a Linux x64 OS4 cross compiler setup.
