Hi All

Is there any news on the Mac version yet. I have a number of people asking me about it.

Laszlo,

I have only today asked Igor to post a thread giving users up to date info on this.

The whole team are working 24/7 on the MAC version and it is quite a challenge, but hopefully he will be able to give some information from time to time.

I have two friends who are eager to get a Mac version, so I too hope for some news soon.

Hi,

We're working on Mac version. Right now we're rewriting OpenGL code to Metal graphics according Apple's recommendations. When we finish this work Beta version will be ready.

Beta version will be available for all registered members on this forum.

This will probably be considered to be most unkind but..... In June 2014 Igor posted "

Are we really now reaching the time when we can honestly expect to bed able to download a Beta version for Mac or are we still years a way from this?

Many stumbling blocks have been overcome by the Wnsoft development team in the progress of a full MacIntosh version. Igor plainly answered your question above:

Thanks Lin,

Though I'm not quite clear as to how this explains a gap that is getting close to six years!

Peter,

No explanation for the time it takes to launch a totally new software in a new language with all the intricacies of PTE is needed. It takes however long it takes. Apparently you've never done software development or you would understand this. As a former software developer myself, I'm amazed at how quickly the development team was able to code in a totally new language compatible with both Apple and Microsoft on two platforms while continuing current development of PTE.  It took Microsoft over three years to upgrade from Win 8 to Win 10 and they have nearly 150,000 people and virtually unlimited resources. Wnsoft has seven total employees and PTE is a complex product.  

Be happy that the Mac version is nearing beta rather than scolding Wnsoft for the time necessary to code for this. They work tirelessly to give users the very best presentation slideshow software available. 

Best regards,

Lin
