Leopard Ready?
Oct 24th, 2007, 11:36am
 
Can those out there who have been using Leopard, as a developer, please verify whether Tinderbox is working with Leopard? Also, what glitches, if any, are you encountering? Thank you.

As I'm thinking of upgrading to Leopard within the next few days, I'd like to know if there will be any problems with TBX as well. Thanks.

Yes, Tinderbox is fine with Leopard.

("Fine" is, of course, subject to the same caveats that confront every Macintosh developer.  We're fine with the seeded advance copies to which developers have had access. There COULD be some last-minute change in the shipped version.  But that's not likely, and it's not likely to affect Tinderbox.)

Thanks! Excellent news (caveats included).

I am running the latest Tinderbox on the official release of Leopard and it is working fine.

Tinderbox seems to run really slow on my MacBook now that I have upgraded to Leopard. It ran fine before. Launch time is way down, and it takes a lot longer to open projects. Interface isn't as responsive. It seems to run at full speed on my older G5 which is also upgraded. Is it running through Rosetta or something? I'm using Tb 4.0.2 and OS 10.5

Tinderbox should run at the same speed, or faster, with Leopard.  It's possible some third application is causing problems. (Tinderbox uses Rosetta on Leopard as well as Tiger, but that's unlikely to be an issue)

First launch after a reboot might be *slightly* slower, for housekeeping.

"Seems" is always a red flag when discussing performance. Let's talk specifics. tinderbox@eastgate.com

I can absolutely report that performance is slower on a MBP under Rosetta.
No question.
Having said that, I can report that it is only obvious when drilling into, or coming out of a container.
Even with a container with only a few notes, the time it takes to re-render the map is slow.
This is not a show-stopper by any stretch, but there is no question that in daily use, TBX "feels" slower in general than any UB app I am using. Not so much that it affects my user experience, but it is there.

This is almost certainly unrelated to Rosetta; if the effect is real, it's probably just a race between the animation and the screen update thread. (The work of moving into or out of a container is trivial -- a matter of microseconds.  Of course, if either the interior or the exterior map is very large, reformatting the map might take a longer time on any system.)

But we can't reproduce the problem, even on a laptop running a large display on rather large files.  Contacting tech support at Eastgate with details is probably your best course.
