We’ve just released Plausible Blocks 1.0-beta2, which provides a drop-in runtime and Xcode-compatible compiler for using Blocks in your iPhone 2.2+ and Mac OS X 10.5 applications.
This release was focused on expanding the supported host and target architectures (thanks to everyone who provided testing!).
- iPhone OS 2.2 and later are now supported.
- The runtime is now available as an iPhone 3gs optimized armv6/armv7 universal binary.
- Development is now supported on PowerPC systems.
The initial beta of Plausible Blocks is available for Leopard and Snow Leopard:
- Leopard: plblocks-1.0-beta2-leopard.dmg
- Snow Leopard: plblocks-1.0-beta2-snowleopard.dmg
- Project page: http://code.google.com/p/plblocks/
This beta release is provided for developer testing and experimentation. Plausible Blocks supports targeting Mac OS X 10.5 (PPC, i386, x86-64), iPhone OS 2.2+ (armv6, armv7), and iPhoneSimulator 2.2+ (i386). Garbage collection and Mac OS X 10.4 are currently unsupported.
