I'm really excited to hear that MCEdit is going to continue into the future with your help TkTech! I haven't had a chance to get into the source code yet since it's gone open source but I can see that bright things are in store for this program with someone as dedicated as you working with it.
Seems like it would be a good program if I could learn the controls... very difficult to understand & operate in my opinion, but if anyone who wants to take some time to understand it, things will run smoothly from there.
These are testing builds with Anvil support and small fixes. If it asks you to update, ignore it. It may burn down an orphanage and frame you, blow up the moon, or otherwise annihilate your machine, use at your own risk.
Windows - (I broke it ;-(, wait a big longer folks).
Linux - Download the latest master, if you're using Linux you know what to do. :smile.gif:
There are likely going to be a ton of issues, and as the build process has been tested by only a few folks the builds themselves may have issues. It's up to you guys to help report issues you run into, or no one will know they exist to fix them :smile.gif:
Keep in mind that reading/writing Anvil maps will use 5x as much memory and will be slightly slower, but shouldn't be an issue on a modern machine. This is being looked into.
Oh barnacles. No Windows version yet. Thanks for the early support, build, whatever you want to call it
A Hackintosh is Mac OSX running on standard PC hardware.
I have stood up for Mac users when other PC users derided them for their choice of machine. Honestly so long as it can get on the internet, open some sort of word program, and run minecraft its all down to personal preference when it comes to the average user.
That said: If you have the technical ability to run Mac software on PC hardware why the heck would you be using Mac software?
I can see getting it to run in a linux cell for the lulz, but even then I would be firing up windows in linux for general accessibility of features and program availability. Running Mac software on PC hardware for day to day usage seems like prying out a pop stars brain and putting it into a technicians body.
Sure, I guess you can, but if you could access a far wider array of programs and features by running almost anything but Mac - why would you?
You are losing the pretty shinyness that makes Macs more appealing socially, while either giving up the accessibility and greater array of programs available to windows users or the L33t technical usages available to those running linux.
Sorry for off topic-ness. This isn't a bash on Mac users in general, I can still see why people would use them even though they aren't my style, I just don't understand the reasoning behind getting Mac software to run on PC hardware. My mind is boggled O_o

Please only+ me if I post something funny or informative.
I have been told (both politely and meanly ;-() that I should do a blog. I'd like to remind people I'm not taking over this as a full-time developer but as a maintainer. I promise to foster communication, peer review contributed commits and make sure the code stays safe and sparkly, and post builds. Anything I do outside of that is done in my spare-spare time because I'm interested in the program. If I do decide to "blog" about it, it will just be an occasional post on my own blog and nothing fancy. Otherwise, just keep checking this thread, I check it often and try to help with issues.
To your second question Yes, whenever I get time, or if someone else does :smile.gif: I work from 8AM-8PM all week trying to deliver on an RFP. When I go home tonight I plan on collapsing face first onto the couch and sleeping until tomorrow.
I don't hate you, and I don't want you to die in a fire.
Thank you for picking up the torch on this project.
