I wish there was a straightforward way to send a comment to MU about this listing, but in the absence of my ability to find it, I would like to note here that version 3.2.0 was the last build to support Tiger (10.4.11). The version offered here (3.4.1, as of this writing) will only run on Leopard (10.5) or later. 3.4.1 does still work on PPC machines, fortunately.

Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a way to download the earlier version (aside from file-sharing options).

All of that aside, iPartition is a powerful and fantastic program.

Thanks for your prompt reply! I never would have thought to email you directly. Duh. Sorry!

It turns out I misspoke earlier. In my defense, Coriolis Systems has put out mixed messages w/r/t iPartition 3's system requirements (though I doubt on purpose).

According to the company's blog post for iPartition 3.2.0 (via Chris), Coriolis "dropped support for Panther (10.3) and PowerPC G3 machines" and do not recommend upgrading if you fall into either of those camps (view the original entry at http://www.coriolis-systems.com/blog/2009/11/ipartition-320-released/).

However, according to the news feed that is specific to iPartition 3 (at http://www.coriolis-systems.com/view-feed.php?feed=iPartition-3), the last version that would run in Tiger was 3.3.0. Per Chris again on the entry dated November 2, 2010, the updated sys reqs for version 3.3.1 are "OS X Leopard or higher; Intel machine or PowerPC G4 or higher." Neither the company blog nor the iPartition feed declare more recent changes to the sys reqs than those.

Despite the declaration on iPartition's main web page that the current version requires OS 10.6 and Intel processors, iterations subsequent to 3.3.0 (as of this writing, there have been four) still download and run fine as universal binaries. I wouldn't think they would leave the legacy code in 'by accident,' so perhaps sys reqs on the web site are a clerical error? It is puzzling.

I'm not complaining! I have a few legacy Macs still running and I am happy to be able to use the application!

The download link appears to be broken (redirects to a SourceForge page that does not exist)?

It seems that the developer URL for this app has changed to http://www.xcast.ch/
