macOS version of UniConvertor 2.0

Posted by igor | Posted in Development | Posted on 29-07-2019

We proud announcing UniConvertor 2.0 (UC2) native application for macOS.

The porting was not a simple issue because we compiled UC2 as a standalone bundle without dependencies on Homebrew/MacPorts. It was a build of ~30 native libraries with a lot of macOS specific patches. As a result we have classic DMG image suitable for macOS 10.9 Mavericks and newer macOS versions.

FYI we built the image on Ubuntu 16.04 using Linux tools only. Almost all the libraries are used for sK1 so there is no problem to prepare sK1 version for macOS.

DMG image can be fetched here and will be updated daily like other installation packages.
