Rhino for OS X is in development
The major technical challenges have been overcome, but there are still many months of work left to do.
Please note that Rhino OS X requires OS X 10.6.8 or later and does not run on 10.5. Also, plug-ins for Windows Rhino will NOT work with Rhino OS X. Details...
We need feedback from both expert and new Rhino users.
We are willing to spend whatever time and effort it takes to get this right, but we need you to tell us what is wrong. During development, pre-release Rhino OS X is free to anyone willing to provide feedback.
If you are interested, please fill out this application.
The development process
The development process is expected to take more than a year. The development phases are:
- Wenatchee (work-in-progress) builds are available to everyone that can provide feedback on the early builds. To get started, fill out an application.
- Cashmere (beta) builds are work in progress. Once the hard work is done and Rhino is ready for polishing. We will invite a larger group of users to get involved.
- Yakima (release candidate) builds will be available to everyone while we finish up the final bug fixes, documentation, and localization.
- Release will be some time after Rhino 5.0 for Windows is released.
Currently we have not worked out the cross platform licensing details, but in any case, we will make it as painless as possible for everyone.
