The initial Max OS X port was made by Elias on a Mac we borrowed.
With the limited time in hand Elias successfully created a Mac port
(although somewhat crippled). As some of you may know, we have since
then tried many times to get Mac developers to join the team. So far
we have met with limited success. In order to fix the LWJGL Mac port we need
to have a dedicated developer with a Mac willing to offer a lot of spare time.
To that end Elias (or actually the - soon to be - company Oddlabs
that is currently working
on Tribal Trouble) has expressed a willingness to purchase a Mac and commit
to finally getting Mac OS X properly supported. As Elias has already proved
his skills, we see this as a very good solution.
However, as many of you know Mac hardware is rather pricey - which is why we
have decided to donate what is in the LWJGL donation fund (It was originally setup
to allow us to do whatever needed to get a Mac port going). We hope to increase
the fund to $1000 USD as fast as possible.
The fund currently holds $90.89 USD. Caspian Rychlik-Prince will
donate $400 (!) to the cause which means we're already halfway! The sooner we reach
the $1000 mark, the sooner the Mac port can be finished!
This is your chance to help out with the LWJGL library! So dig deep
Should we increase this fund to more than $1000 the remaining money will be
kept in the fund, and used to help with creating new features (ie.
purchasing a controller to do the Force Feedback implementation), hosting on a
proper server or other LWJGL causes.
