.... guess who got a new MacBook Pro today?

What's the state of the Snow Leopard work? Anyone have a branch that I
should check out? I'll be putting in some serious time on Saturday to try to
get this stuff working.

Hey, nice! I love my new MacBook White, it's great. Not quite as shiny, but
better specs than the MBP 13" base. Upgraded with 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD.

The work on Snow Leopard hasn't been officially started yet, it's mostly
been just investigations in to what we need to do. So far, it looks like we
need to do whatever we can to get rid of those deprecated Carbon functions
in shoes/native/cocoa.m. After that, it *should* run fine. It looks a bit
tricky though, because I'm fairly sure those Carbon functions were being
used for a reason over pure-Cocoa, just by looking at the code.

Okay, cool. I'll make sure to write up whatever I end up doing. I'm excited,
though.

I've been thinking about this issue. Easy for me to to do without a Mac.
WxWindows/WxRuby has been ported to the OS X 10.? . How did they solve
the problem? I worked on some of that code way back in the Mac OS 6.7
time frame. If they've moved that bulk of ugly WindowRef-> to "no
carbon, only quartz" then it's possible for Shoes.

Oddly enough (although I could be wrong) the code appears to be using a mash
of Carbon functions *and* Quartz functions.
