End of Life Notice for NovaMind 5 for MacOS X 10.5
Before the initial release of NovaMind 4, we announced that we would not be updating the version that runs on 10.5 beyond the first few releases, and would not be adding any new functionality. We have gone further than that and incorporated some significant improvements, back-porting them to the 10.5 compatible version, but now it is time to put the 10.5 release behind us and concentrate our efforts firmly on newer technologies.
If you are still using NovaMind 5 on 10.5, we will still provide support, but we do not anticipate releasing any further bug fix updates unless there is something significant that needs to be addressed, and we will not be adding any further new functionality to the application. To get the latest updates and new features, you will need to switch to a more modern operating system, preferably Lion.
