Looking for a new version of AlphaX ?
AlphaX is available for Mac OS X.
The latest beta development release (AlphaX 8.2b) can be downloaded from [http://pagesperso-orange.fr/bdesgraupes/alphabinaries.html]. It requires OSX 10.4 or 10.5.
The second final, public release of AlphaX 8.0 (8.0.2) was released in June 2006. It exists in three different flavors, for Mac OS X versions 10.2.x, 10.3.x, and 10.4.x:
(Jaguar: 13.4 mB download ; Panther: 14.3 mB ; Tiger: 10.9 mB.)
Unlike previous beta versions of AlphaX, there is no need to download and install the "Tcl" software library separately. Each flavor listed above is upwards compatible, i.e. the Jaguar version should also work in Panther and Tiger.
