#119 Mac support.

Queco Jones

Any hope of a version for Mac OS X? I used the Win98 version
until recently; I switched to a Mac, but I also use the PocketPC
version. I just wish I could have all of the passwords in my P
da available on my Mac as well.

    There's always hope...

    Seriously, The current (2.0) arcitecture provides a much
    cleaner separation between the core functionality and the
    GUI. Once the MFC container classes are replaced by STL
    versions, it should be pretty simple to port to Mac, as well
    as other platforms.

    Well, I have a Mac running OS X (10.3.2) and have installed the
    developer's tools and fink. I've never done any kind of Mac
    programming though. Any ideas/suggestions/tips/advice/whatever on
    how to get started on something like this?

    PS: I'm fluent in both English/Spanish... any interest in translating the
    program(s) to Spanish? I may not be a good enough coder, but I'd like to
    help out somehow if I can (plus I've got a month of disablity to kill). :)

    Sorry, but I've barely used a Mac, let alone program one.
    You might want to post to the passwordsafe-devel mailing
    list - perhaps others have more experience.

    As to Spanish - I'll mail you seperately.

    I've been using PasswordSafe for a long time. Now it looks
    like I will begin using Mac OS X in the near future and
    really what to have the native Mac GUI instead of running
    PasswordSafe in virtualPC. Anyone working on a Mac OS X
    version? Does version 2.10 have the MFC replaced with STL to
    make porting easier?
