Vala 0.20.1 / GTK+ 3.6.4 for Mac OS X - official release

After the Windows installer, here comes the Apple one ! Very pleased to announce the first release ever for Vala 0.20.1 on Mac OS X.

So far, it has only been tested on Leopard (10.5), so any feedback with a more recent version will be greatly appreciated.

I plan to port ValaWinPKG to OS X (ValaOSXPkg ?) so people will be able to download and use additionnal libraries easily. Stay tuned.

(an updated version of GTK+2, 2.24.18, is still provided for compatibility purposes)




How to install

Prerequisites : you absolutely have to get and install XCode first, it won't install otherwise.

1) In the Finder, double-click on the .dmg file, then on the "Vala 0.20.1 (installer)" file.

2) Follow the Wizard. Reboot as required.

3) If you go to "/Applications", you will spot a new "Vala" folder containing some demos, which you can run to verify if everything went well :

4) Now in "/Applications/Utilities", open the "Terminal" app, and verify you can compile and run a Vala program using these kinds of commands :

valac myprogram.vala -o mypprogram
./myprogram

Here we go !
