OpenMCL and Tiger

Getting antsy about Tiger?

Gary Byers is planning on an OpenMCL release soon after OS X 10.4's official release day, but it looks like the current version should mostly work with Tiger.

The biggest problem that I'm aware of with Tiger and 0.14.3 is that the Cocoa bridge has trouble interpreting some strings used to encode method parameter and instance variable types (either because GCC 4.0 encodes those types a little differently, because new methods/ivars have type signatures that contain constructs that the bridge hasn't yet seen, or both.) I've been working on extending the interface translator and databases to retain information about ObjC classes and methods; this isn't finished yet, but the good news is that things seem to work about as well under a late Tiger prerelease as they do on Panther.

(Gmane has a new blog-style interface, where threads are rendered as root posts plus comments. Maybe that's neat.)
