Core for Mac OS X was/is working with versions prior to Jaguar. Something small (I hope) broke with the 10.2 release of OS X. RT is aware of this and is looking at the issue but no word on when a fix will be available yet. Some work was also done on View on OS X (betas I think) - enough for RT to say they had some issues, including performance, that needed to be addressed before it was an acceptable port.

I'm not a Java programmer but the little bit of poking around with it on OS X I've done supports that assumption. I'm using ArgoUML and jEdit with no issues and the Java integration with the Apple tools (Project/Interface Builder) is quite impressive. FWIW, Rod.
