On OS X 10.6.8, at least, it fixes some (not all) of the issues
mentioned by Henrique and Berend. Among other things, there's
support for the R shared library and there's a window listing under
the top-level Mac Window menu. Some of the keyboard accelerators are
better than before.
Testing on Mac OS X 10.8.3.
The first time I started this Gretl Ctrl+F2 had no effect at all.
With all subsequent launches of Gretl Ctrl+F2 has invariably activated the Gretl menu at
the top of the main Gretl window.
- Letter navigation in the menus doesn't work. Arrow keys, Home and End keys do let
you navigate Gretl's menu.
- The Global menu at the top of the screen is unreachable with the keyboard.
- Switching windows with Command+` (Command+backquote) doesn't work (yet).
- The path to the R library has been detected correctly.
- Double clicking a Gretl script with extension .inp launches/activates Gretl.
- Pressing Command+Q to quit Gretl brings up the "save commands" dialog with the
Yes button highlighted. Navigating to the No button doesn't highlight the No button
but only show a highlighted border. Navigating to the other buttons in that dialog does
highlight the complete button.
- in the Data menu there is (still) a shortcut ^A for Select all
- Start GNU R starts R.app without issue (gretldata and gretlmsg are available) (I
haven't yet tried the foreign interface)
- Tools, Gnuplot starts a Terminal window with Gnuplot and funny error messages as
mentioned in my previous pos.
But trying to make a plot for example with "plot sin(x)" doesn't seem to
work properly. The AquaTerm icon appears in the dock and no window with the plot appears.
Gnuplot seems to be expecting input but doesn't react to commands. I had to use
Command+Q to exit this instance. Very weird. Somebody else without a separate Gnuplot and
Aquaterm framework should have a go at this.
Plotting directly within Gretl presents no problems at all.
Note: This may be caused that my AquaTerm framework (32-bits and used by my 32-bit
Gnuplot.app). I have temporarily renamed the framework and the problem seems to persist
with a vengeance since a Gnuplot crash occurred.
