Great software, unfortunately no longer under active development. See: http://sigildev.blogspot.com

I am still using it in Mavericks. I use Calibre also, which is constantly improving as an ebook editor.

Works on my Snow Leopard system.

Ever hear of 10.8.4? No. Then how did you find this website? Is weather.com down? When a dev says 10.6 support, he or she doesn't actually mean it, they're just giving people the the illusion that they support antiquated software that NOBODY has touched in years so that they look like nice devs to the poors who may have stumbled upon a computer that happens still fire up and run 10.6. I think it's smart business, unless your computer fell out of the back of a truck (yes, yours) and you expect it to work with everything. Besides Mountain Lion (10.8.x), ever hear the phrase, "beggars can't be choosers"?

@Mountabe What's with all the snobby vitriol? Have a bad day in the dumster?

Thanks be to Apple, a Mac doesn't have to be all that old to not run Mountain Lion.

I have to test it better, but using it with OS X 10.8.2, it works fine and I don't get any crash.

DEFINITELY crashes with MAC 10.6.8
I've tried two versions of SIGIL 6.2 AND 7.1
They both fail to load. Have sent crash report to the 2 developers. I think the solution is to find another editor, cos nobody's gonna make this backward compatible :-(

Anyway, let's wait and see. Maybe the developers are nice guys. :-)

Actually, 0.6.2 is out, but hold off. More and more people are reporting that it crashes on start up in OSX. Someone really needs to catch up on this listing at MacUpdate.

Actually system requirements need to be updated. On Sigil's forums the developer states that official releases won't work on 10.6.8:

In this thread you can find a 0.6.2 version compiled for 10.5 and later (post #8). Working fine for me on 10.6.8.
