I guess I should state the somewhat obvious, the development team does not currently have a 'Mac guru'. Developing for Mac is its own world, and requires tools and methods only available to an active Mac developer. Unfortunately, at the moment, that expertise is not present on this project AFAIK. I will inquire of the 'powers that be' as to their plans, but I expect to hear - "we are looking, but no one has stepped forward".

That's sad. I wish I were a 'Mac guru'.

I will close this topic now as it is going nowhere. ;)
