The release notes for version 3.7.0 build 361 state:

"Smile 3.7.0 is for Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6.x) and higher.
Release notes for Smile 3.7.0 build 761
SmileLab interface
bug fixed in the Javascript bridge. SmileLab now works on Mac OS 10.8"

I cannot get it to do anything but bomb on OS X 10.8.5. I also note that it's still 32-bit. Here are a few lines of the crash report:

"Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread
Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGBUS)
Exception Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x0000000000000000"

Meanwhile, a clean install of older version 3.6.1 still runs on 10.8.5, albeit with complaints and bugs.

IOW: Version 3.7.0 is not ready for prime time from my consistent experience. I hope this version's problems are sorted out as I'd like to see Smile continue on OS X. I have not tested this version of Smile on earlier versions of OS X.

I'd appreciate other people testing this version on OS X 10.8.5 to verify my results.

On OS X 10.6.8 it runs fine. What's really needed now is Mavericks support.

When I launch Smile it also launches Skype. If I delete Skype, Smile opens a file selection dialog on launch asking where to find Skype. Why is this happening? I'm not using any scripts to launch Smile and there's nothing in Smile's preferences that refers to Skype.

  • a XML editor,
  • a Regular Expression engine,
  • a XML and p-list engine,
  • a 2D graphic engine, where you program vectorial PDF graphics by script,
  • commands for driving industrial interfaces: RS232 serial communication, digital I/O, LED display.
Smile ships with an impressive set of additional tools of various kinds, for instance a backup utility. Smile is totally scriptable, attachable (each object can own a script), and tailored (with scripts you can customize the interface to any extent.)
