Yes.. it's time to bring this up again.. in the release notes..

MyEclipse on Machintosh OS/X Known Issues

* Due to MyEclipse instability issues on the Mac platform the current features are not available: Matisse4MyEclipse Visual Web Designer, MyUML, and Matisse4MyEclipse. We are working to resolve the instability issues as quickly as possible.


COME ON GUYS!! Us Mac users are a growing population! Help us out here! Please? :(

The louder you get the better (I do what I can on this end, without getting fired ;)

I know we are working on getting the Web designer running right now on Mac and Linux, but no work has explicitly been done on M4M/MyUML yet. I think we are focusing on getting the AJAX tools and designer first as some changes in the 3.3 platform are helping get this work going.

Technical limitations always suck... it always leaves someone out in the cold... we hate it.

DaveO,

For the 6.0GA release we've added the ability to run our AJAX tooling on the Mac, which is a step in the right direction. We're also becoming very involved in the Alberio project at Eclipse (http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/albireo/) where we hope to work with others to knock out the cross-platform issues. So, we're really trying... :-)

There is work conducted on all SWING features every release. They get tested and some problems are fixed but it doesn't seem like SWT-AWT on Mac is mature enough. Unlike Windows and Linux there are still random problems that are really hard to reproduce not to say - fix. That is why SWING features still stay in "experimental" state as well as AJAX ones.

"-Dmac.experimental=true" is a key ;)

Please note that we keep those features "experimental" for reason. While they do (mostly) appear completely usable they can destabilize your IDE so please make sure to save your work before using them. We are working on identifying those instabilities and are trying to get rid of them.

Well, I wish "Experimental" included the Swing designer.. Any chance you could "make that happen" at some point?

Absolutely. Anything not working on Mac yet is under our umbrella of "Get it working on the Mac".

No, I mean.. make the experimental flag also turn on Matisse... :)

Oh, no need to. It and UML just crash immediately. You can click a few times but then there is some platform exception.

Believe me, if it worked, we would have, and then would have printed it on T-Shirts and banners, and passed them around :D

Another Mac User... I've been using MyEclipse on Linux for the past 2 years and have LOVED it! You guys do great work and can't wait for you to get these working.

Ugh... the experimental switch is a pain. Makes all kinds of stuff go wonky. And I hate.. repeat HATE having to run ME in Parallels in Windows on my Mac... I was hoping at least Ajax debugging would work.. but no.. that's even fussy and crash-prone... =(

So what's the problem. Now that Leopard is out and NetBeans has Matisse running on the Mac, when is MyEclipse going to get it working? I just upgraded to MyEclipse fully expecting Matisse to work (silly me).

I'm starting to take a serious look at Netbeans 6 now. Works the same in both PC and Mac. The only part I see missing for me is the Accubridge for Accurev (my company source control system). I've put in a request for them to work on it. Hopefully they will.

But I'm just fed up with the support the Mac gets for Eclipse tools.. it's way past bad now.. it's just pathetic.
