red diamond native Mac OS X port released soon.

A french lead team works feverishly on porting natively to Mac OS X. Don't get me wrong, runs already on Mac OS X. However, the current port does require X Windows. This means the software does not look like an OS X application and it requires an extra package to be installed. These are extra hurdles to overcome and might prevent new users from trying out One solution so far was NeoOffice, an effort to integrate more closely with OS X.

It appears another team is working towards the same goal right in the original code base. They are ready to present their work at Conference 2006 (Lyon), September 11- 13 and Apple Expo (Paris), September 12 to 16.
