softkid iRATE is in the hands of 2 linux guys. Neither of us own a mac or even have access to one. We've been trying to get an osx version out, but it's really hard to guide java newbies though the process.
There is 2 guis for irate right now. We have the original swing gui that appeared in irate 0.1. That one was succeded by a much lighter & faster swt gui. SWT and nanoxml + some code recrafting allowed us to switch to a completely free java platform.
So to make a 0.2 release for OSX we either need to updated the old swing gui with a few menu entries and provide an OSX installation package for it or have some java-savvy hacker help us out with packaging an swt version of irate for OSX.
In other words, help wanted for proper OSX support.
If nobody volunteers to do an osx release and I get some time off school I plan on borrowing an ibook from someone and getting irate going.

Excuse me if there are any grammar errors, but it's late and I can't sleep.

Ok, I'm certified now, but I still can't get myself listed as developer on irate. Guess I'm not sertified enough.
