I would like to inform you that we're planning to drop OS X 10.6
support this month or during the next few months (depending on your
feedback), as part of our ongoing effort to streamline and automate
the build process for X2GoClient's OS X versions.
Currently, we have to create a separate build for OS X 10.6, which, if
we move to new (hosted and virtualized) build hardware, would probably
double our monthly costs, so we're trying to avoid that.
OS X 10.6 is no longer receiving security updates by Apple since
For OS X 10.5, Apple ceased security support in September 2011.
We continued to support OS X 10.5 in X2GoClient until April of 2012.
That was a good 6 months over the official end of support from Apple's
Following that logic, we should already have dropped support for OS X
10.6 around August 2014, so it's long overdue to do so.
If you're currently using OS X 10.6 and have no plans or no way to
upgrade to a newer release, please speak up now.
We might consider providing OS X 10.6 builds of X2GoClient for longer
if someone steps up and sponsors the work.
