ok. Do you mean that TXS would be compatible with OS X 10.5 but the only snag is that nobody has compiled it? (too bad...)
 

Probably.

Can't be completely sure, without someone testing it...

Hi,

Then I checked on the TXS website and, indeed, the current versions of TXS are labelled for OS X 10.7.5 and 10.8; so I guessed it was a compatibility problem between OS X versions.
Since no one of the developers uses a mac, we only have versions for the OSX versions that are compiled by some users and provided to us.

And they do not seem to have 10.5 anymore...

would it be possible to keep on your website a (previous) version of TXS compatible with older versions of OS X ?
Actually there is one.
But you have to view the page source, where you can find a html comment with the old versions.

And on the sourceforge download page they are all listed anyways

ok. Thanks for the info; in that case, I'll give to my concerned students the precise html address of the sourceforge download (of TXS 2.4, as it seems the last one compiled for OS 10.5).

Hello,

A few weeks ago, I used TXS for a LaTeX course, to students who had never used LaTeX before. They liked it! One issue arised, though, when a student (under Mac OS X 10.5) tried to install it at home, after the lesson: she couldn't... (more precisely, the computer said "unable to launch TXS" or sth like that). Then I checked on the TXS website and, indeed, the current versions of TXS are labelled for OS X 10.7.5 and 10.8; so I guessed it was a compatibility problem between OS X versions. 

Even though OS X 10.5 is not an up-to-date version, it seems it's still used (dunno... I'm not a Mac user). Hence my question: would it be possible to keep on your website a (previous) version of TXS compatible with older versions of OS X ?

 (It turned out the student finally managed to install TXS, by finding a previous version compatible with OS X 10.5 (TXS 2.3) in the 5th page of a Google search... But other could be in the same situation in the futur...)

Regards,
