RE: [XaraXtreme-dev] Supporting different OS than Linux, Win32, and Mac OS X?

Neil / Andreas,

(with apologies for replying to a 3 month old message that only seems
to have made it through the mail queue today - Xmas post I guess :-) ).

We've not considered other platforms yet, we want to give our full
attention to the Linux/Mac port first. It's partly a question of
manpower, but also a question of focus and not wanting to take on more
than we can manage.

Neil's right, but saying that...

I'd really like to see (and help making it possible!) a FreeBSD version,

Solaris, whatever version.

... I'm pretty sure an i386 (Free|Net|Dragonfly)BSD GTK2 version would
pretty much compile out the box when the code is out. The only vaguely
Linux specific thing I can think the code is doing is reading the
nanosecond timer - that's mainly for profiling and IIRC is supported
on BSD as well. So whilst it may not be supported, I'm pretty sure it
would be easy if not trivial to get working.
