This page contains the information about releases as it looked around 2006. Don't be fooled by words like 'new'...
AlphaX is available for Mac OS X.
The second final, public release of AlphaX 8.0 (8.0.2) has been released. AlphaX comes 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. Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) includes a Tcl distribution (version 4.7) in the Library of the operating system; the Jaguar and Panther distributions of AlphaX include a Tcl interpreter embedded within the application. Each flavor listed above is upwards compatible, i.e. the Jaguar version should also work in Panther and Tiger.
The first final, public release of Alpha8 8.0.2 has been released. You can download it from here:
Follow the installation instructions found in the unpacked archive.
Alphatk is available for Windows, Unix, and Mac OS X.
If you are using MacOSX, please see the NotesForMacOSXUsers.
Beta releases of Alpha8/X expire a fixed number of days after they are built (c.f Changes - Alpha [http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/*checkout*/alphatcl/Help/Changes%20-%20Alpha?rev=HEAD]).
While it is preferred that you use the the latest (i.e. non-expired) release available, it is sometimes useful to run older releases. To override the beta expiry check at startup, create a folder (or file) next to your Alpha8/X application named Don't expire Alpha beta (exactly).
