Surprising they should bother with supplying an Action for this, but I applaud the option.

Doesn’t this imply that Freeway 6, will be Lion only?

No - it says that Exhibeo is for Lion and as Exhibeo is a separate App you cannot infer anything from the software that created its web presence.

But you obviously can infer FW6 is in beta.

I only said ‘imply’!

Can any one tell what essential aspect of Exhibeo’s modus operandi, necessitate it being Lion only, eg does it use or rely on some routine introduced by Lion.

I humbly raised the point, since I have read many posts here, some from experts in FWPro 5, expressing their reluctance to switch from Snow Leopard to Lion, and if Apple politics are somehow forcing Softpress’s hand towards Lion only Apps, then IMHO it’s a sorry day.

I was wondering the same thing. Why is it Lion only?

The math is pretty simple. If you want to build one version of your application (and you do, when you are a smallish company), you want to build a version that will sell on the Mac App Store, where you will sell a metric crap-ton of copies. Which means it has to support “sandboxing”, which means it has to be Lion.

I don’t work for or speak for Softpress, no inside information here, just an educated guess.

This seems likely to also mean that Showcase is obsolete and perhaps will be dropped from FW6 package.

Glutton for punishment, that I am, but am I to understand that FWPro 5.6.5, advertised as “Mountain Lion Ready”, is NOT build according to Apple’s ‘Sandboxing Guidelines’, whereas FWPro FS as sold in App Store, is!

18 Oct 2012, 9:20 pm

There’s an equal possibility that I have no idea what I am talking about here. Of course you’re right — the Freeway MAS version runs on Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later.

If you look at the thread “Exhibeo is here!”, started by SP’s Joe Billings, it seems that to assume the demise of Showcase would be a tad premature, since Exhibeo, seems to be somewhat beta.

So is FW6…..which I did mention.

Hi guys,

Walter is correct, all new apps on the app sore need to be sandboxed, and that requires Lion. Freeway was added before that requirement was put into place, so can still be built to run on Snow Leopard.

Hope this helps clear things up.

I just wish Walter was able to once again unleash his creative side and upload some ‘feature teaser’ drawings as he did (unofficially) when a previous version of FreewayPro was launched.

That was me. There were also some adverts that appeared in the press that used that character too. They were fun to do.

Hi Paul

My apologies for mis-attributing them. I thought they appeared at one of Walter’s Freeway domain names but clearly my memory is a bit foggy.

They may have been on one of his domains. I remember we planned to make them appear to be as unofficial as possible to up the interest and increase the anticipation, so it they could not be on a domain that Softpress owned.

Those were her last outings. No doubt the NDA enforcement team spirited her away….
