Yet again the fact that I’m developing on Mac OS X 10.2.8 is causing problems. Bruce tried out a copy of SQLEditor (Cocoa) on 10.3 (Panther) and it doesn’t seem to work at all. You can’t seem to add objects to the canvas which is the key requirement. Most of the other functionality is based on this particular activity. I’ve looked quite carefully at the code and I really can’t see where the problem is. There isn’t anything odd going on.
This is really bad news, especially after the previous problems that occurred with the java version on 10.3 (which was the reason I wrote a cocoa version in the first place). I’m really not sure what to do.
This has made me a bit depressed because I’ve been working really hard on SQLEditor recently to prepare it for release.
It’s really annoying that there isn’t better compatibility between Mac OS X versions.
I’ll try to write some more about what I’m going to do about this tomorrow.
