Loris 1.0beta5 for Mac OS released

This is the Mac OS binary release corresponding to the fifth beta release of Loris 1.0. Loris includes the Loris C++ class library, a c-linkable procedural interface, a scripting interface built using SWIG (www.swig.org), and documentation.

This package includes pre-built libraries for Loris 1.0beta5, FFTW 2.1.3, and SDIF 3.4 (courtesy of IRCAM), and a plugin module for the carbonized version of MacPython 2.1.1 (available from www.cwi.nl/~jack/macpython.html).

This package also includes the CodeWarrior projects, exported as XML files, that were supposed to be included with the full Loris 1.0beta5 distribution, but were erroneously omitted. The Loris project can easily be modified to build a module for any version of MacPython since 1.5.2. The module included here can be used with the carbonized version of MacPython 2.1.1 only. The Loris library can be used along with the source code (header files) in the full Loris distribution, for building other applications or extension modules. In order to use any of these components, the FFTW and SDIF libraries should be installed in the Extensions folder.

Finally, an updated version of the test script morphtest.py (from the test directory of the source distribution) that works under MacOS is included.

Please see the full Loris source distribution for more information.
