I’m keeping this post as a running list of the applications I’m running on my Powerbook that might need to be updated when I install Tiger (OS X 10.4) next week. Truthfully, it’s a list of the applications that I use on anything more than a once-yearly basis, with information about whether the author has released a Tiger-related update. If anyone has more information about anything listed, or I’ve noted something that isn’t correct, feel free to leave comments!


I’ll be releasing 2.3 this weekend. 2.2.9 will run fine on Tiger, but 2.3 is just a bit more nifty ;)

I’m not keeping a list cause I’m a crazy nut job who likes to live dangerously.

iTerm seems to run just fine

Fugu has now been updated to version 1.1.3, which is supposed to be a Tiger support release.

TextMate has leaped to version 1.1b7, but without any Tiger-related information. (Again, I can’t imagine that Tiger will necessitate a TextMate upgrade though.)

I also now have it on good authority (e.g., the author!) that SSHKeychain 0.7.1 works without issue on Tiger.

It now looks confirmed that the current Cisco VPN client will not work with Tiger; Cisco hopes to have a compatible client out within two weeks following the release of OS X 10.4 (so within two weeks of tomorrow).

Just called Apani support regarding the Netlock Client for Nortel VPN. They are “still testing” and will email users that ask a notification when they have either approved the current version or have released an update.

Still no word about TransparentDock, which is really their loss, since the free utility ClearDock is now Tiger-ready. Looks like a no-brainer…

Apani is broke broke broke.

The currently released version of the Contivity VPN Client, v3.1.1, will not support the use of Mac OS 10.4. There are changes at the kernel level that cause the Contivity VPN Client to no longer work.

Toast 6.0.9 only works up to 10.3.9. For Tiger, there is an update from Roxio. the problem encountered with 6.0.9 in Tiger is that in copying a CDd or DVD or disk image, the original cannot be unmounted. The update solves this problem.
