Would OSX/FreeBSD support be difficult to achieve?

    Since I don't know the involved API's on those platforms I can't tell if it would be hard or easy.
    best thing would be to just try to code it and see.

     
  • I've got OSX 10.5 and higher support in my fork of JNotify at http://github.com/mdonoughe/jnotify . It cannot pass all the unit tests from the original JNotify because I cannot guarantee that events are reported in order. See the readme file for more information on that.

     
  • I integrated the forked macosx lib + code into original JNotify code.
    First -very basic - tests were promising.

     
  • Mac OS X 10.5 and higher is supported in 0.93. I have not looked into FreeBSD support.
