I just want to say how fantastic this new version is.
A big 'Thank You' to all the staff at Accordance for their outstanding service.

I also want to be the first member to ask 'When are we getting version 9?' Ha Ha!

BIG thanks to the developers! Just installed and started using "8!" The first thing I noticed was the SNAP with which all the functions occurred. May Rosetta rest in peace!
I love the shading in the tagged texts and the GNT-T / BHS-W4! I can't wait to dig deeper. I'm not sure how much time this will save, but it feels good, like testing out a new car!
Once again, Accordance is proven to be over the top in excellence!

I just wanted to add my "Amen!" to the chorus. I have a imac G5 (I converted to Mac right before the intel switch) and was reluctant to update to 8 because 7 ran so well on my powerpc mac. However, the new features were too much of a temptation not to try. I couldn't be more pleased with the snappy performance and the new features that allowed me to set up my workspace just like I like it. If there is a bug I haven't run across it yet. Congrats to the development team.

Wow! I just saw the 8.01 update on MacUpdate- I didn't even know that 8 was out! Congrats team. I'll be picking up my copy as soon as I get to a high speed internet connection.

Out of curiosity which native OS technologies do you use? Is Accordance 8 now an xCode project? Mostly Cocoa? Do you use native text renders?

Congratulations again! I can't wait to use this on my MacBook!

Any love? The forum is active, what with the cold shoulder? I'm running the Demo now and it's quite good.

Cheers, Ed

Ed:

We don't mean to give you the cold shoulder, we just don't have a quick answer. Programming is a little like making sausages: enjoy the result but don't ask what went into it!

Accordance is Carbon which allows us to compile the same code for different platforms: Intel, PPC and 68K for the emulator. Other than that I cannot answer your questions about text renderers or xCode.

Thanks Helen. I don't mean to make programming into politics as many often do, just curious because how it's programmed affects how it behaves.

Cheers,
