Rhino for Mac Wenatchee 5 Build 2014-09-17

There is a new Mac Work In Progress (WIP) build available, Wenatchee 2014–09–17.

This Mac release includes all applicable updates and fixes from Rhino for Windows V5.9 (SR9).

This Mac WIP release also includes these Mac-specific changes:
  • Fixes
    • The 2014–08–27 WIP release would crash at startup on very early MacBook Pros. This has been fixed.
    • In a few cases, the command options dialog would position itself off the screen and out of view. This has been fixed.
    • Other crashes have been fixed.
Because the format of the internal build number has changed in this 2014–09–17 WIP release, the 2014–08–27 and earlier WIP releases will not notify users about the availability of this new version. This will be fixed in the next WIP release.

Please report any problems you find in the Rhino for Mac support forum.

Requires latest version of OS X Lion (10.7.5), latest version of OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5) or any version of OS X Mavericks.

This Mac release includes all applicable updates and fixes from Rhino for Windows V5.9 (SR9).

This Mac WIP release also includes these Mac-specific changes:
  • Changes
    • Rhino for Mac has been updated to install correctly on the second beta release of OS X Yosemite and on the upcoming OS X 10.9.5 release.
    • Information about your hardware and Rhino software has been moved from the OpenGL preferences panel to its own dialog. You can display this dialog by choosing About Rhinoceros in the application menu and clicking the More Info… button.
    • The Inspector sidebar on the right side of the modeling window has a number of changes:
      • You can have from 1 to 6 sections in the Inspector sidebar. This is set with a new preference in Preferences > Themes.
      • New Viewport and Display inspectors have been added.
      • The icons have been updated to match OS X Yosemite styling.
      • The icons now have a right-click context menu that let you choose which icons are visible in each section. Each section is individually customizable.
  • Fixes

Rhino for Mac Wenatchee 5 Build 2014-07-28

There is a new Mac Work In Progress (WIP) build available, Wenatchee 2014–07–28.

This Mac release includes all applicable updates and fixes from Rhino for Windows V5.9 (SR9).

This Mac WIP release also includes these Mac-specific changes:
  • Changes
    • Rhino now always asks to keep changes when closing documents if you have not explicitly saved your changes. The state of the System Preferences setting “Ask to keep changes when closing documents” is no longer used.
    • When commands like Explode produced more that one line of output, only the last line would be visible in the status line. Now a popup window temporarily shows all the output from the completed command.
    • Dialogs such as the analysis dialogs and the Osnaps dialog when under the cursor no longer use a dark theme. The dark theme that is currently used in Rhino is not visually compatible with the dark theme in OS X Yosemite.
    • The “Distance between items” field in the ArrayCrv dialog now accepts values that include units.
  • Fixes
    • The code that creates model preview images has been replaced and should fix the intermittent “black preview” issue.
    • Autosaves to a remote network could be slow because Rhino would keep the modeling views from updating until the autosave was completed. This has been fixed.
    • Several issues with OS X Yosemite have been fixed.
    • Other crashes have been fixed.
Please report any problems you find in the Rhino for Mac support forum.

Requires latest version of OS X Lion (10.7.5), latest version of OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5) or any version of OS X Mavericks.

Rhino for Mac Wenatchee 5 Build 2014-07-14

There is a new Mac Work In Progress (WIP) build available, Wenatchee 2014–07–14.

This Mac release includes all applicable updates and fixes from Rhino for Windows V5.9 (SR9).

This Mac WIP release also includes these Mac-specific changes:
  • Additions
    • The COLLADA or Digital Asset Exchange file exporter (.dae) has been added. OS X natively displays .dae files in Preview and the Finder, so this is a useful format for distributing Rhino models to other OS X users who want to view the model but do not have Rhino.
  • Changes
    • The applicable updates and fixes from Rhino for Windows V5.9 (SR9) have been merged into this WIP release.
    • Command options in the left sidebar have been tuned up to improve readability.
    • Typing a command now uses a smarter autocomplete. A typed command will autocomplete with your most most recent commands listed first. It will also display non-exact matches if there is room enough to list them.
    • SelVisible has been enabled again. If it continues to generate crashes it will be disabled until it gets further work.
  • Fixes
    • After printing using vector format, zooming in a view would not work correctly. This is fixed.
    • Other crashes have been fixed.
Please report any problems you find in the Rhino for Mac support forum.

Requires latest version of OS X Lion (10.7.5), latest version of OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5) or any version of OS X Mavericks.
