We now have ready a v5 beta for Macintosh. There have been a lot of changes made to this release over the v4 Mac edition, although many may not be visible. One thing is it is now based on the Cocoa framework, plus it is now Intel only. Those of you who still have a PPC system will have to continue to use one of the BA v4 editions.
Another change is the location of the modules. In v4 they were located in /Library/Application Support/Bible Analyzer. In v5 there are in the user writable Home/USER/Library/Application Support/Bible Analyzer. This should alleviate the issues some were having writing to or indexing modules. We placed a utility in the v5 Tools menu that will copy all v4 file to the v5 location.
Also, v5 is distributed as a DMG image instead of a pkg file. This make installation more convenient. The DMG file contains the basic modules distributed with Bible Analyzer and will install them into the modules folder for each user on the computer. This is the way BA works now in Linux as well. This is really the only way to deal with the permissions issues and multiple users on a single computer.
Since Apple now distributes OS X freely, we have updated to 10.10.3 on our development system. Most Mac users have likely updated as well. However, v5 will probably run on earlier editions of OS X. Possible back to 10.6. All the v5 features appear to be working in this Mac edition, however, a couple access changes had to be made. For instance, OS X will not allow the Insert key to be used as a shortcut, so for the Quick Insert of text into ScripturePad Alt+I must be used (or the menu item under the Control Menu.)
Here is the file,http://www.bibleanalyzer.com/files/Bibl ... r5beta.dmg
Simply open the DMG and drag BA into the Applications alias.
Let me know of any issues or problems.
