MarcEdit testing on ‘Nix (updates)

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

So far so good.  I’ve had a great response and am starting to get back feedback that I’ll be incorporating into work that I plan on doing this weekend to fix a few ‘Nix issues.  But I think that when the next MarcEdit release is posted – I’ll for the first time be including information on how to run MarcEdit on Linux. 

Now a Mac – that platform is a completely different animal.  Mono is being developed to be cross platform so MarcEdit does run on a Mac – but not well.  There are at this point still too many UI issues for me to recommend or suggest someone using a Mac run MarcEdit on that platform.  My hope is that Mono 2.6 due in Sept. will correct many of the Mac UI problems.  The roadmap indicates that most of the work for this build in the Windows.Forms emulation will be dedicated to Mac UI fixes – so here’s hoping that is true.
