[Announce] PCGen 5.8.1 RC2 Mac installer is available
- Get it while it's hot ;-)
Let me repeat some info regarding the new configuration of the Mac install:
I've changed the configuration of the Package. Now ALL the PCGen files are
contained within the PCGen.app. So instead of a folder with the app and the
data, docs, lib and other folders you will see just the "PCGen 5.8.1"
application by itself and not inside a folder at all. Everything works same
as before the only difference is that in order to access the files you will
need to control-click on the PCGen.app and choose "Show Package Contents".
You can always go to the location preference and point PCGen to folder in
other locations outside of the app if you need to.
One nice benefit to this is that it cuts about 9 or 10mb off the download,
this is because the lib folder needed to be both inside and outside the app
but now with everything inside there is no duplication.
Many Mac applications are being bundled in this way but it is a matter of
preference, also there may be reasons I'm unaware of that might make this a
bad idea. I'd like to get feedback from our Mac users on this configuration
good or bad so a decision can be made as to if this should be the new
default configuration or not.
