What is the difference between the Mac and Windows JUCE downloads?
If the source code is platform independent why is there not one download?
Is only the Projucer application different and the modules are exactly the same?
On GitHub is the zip file for Windows and tar.gz for Mac OSX?
Also what is the major advantage of moving up to JUCE 5 from 4.3.1?
My plugin is just a basic VST synth, nothing fancy. I’ve been using 4.3.1 in Windows for ages and it has always been super stable both during development and in the field with over a thousand users worldwide.
I’ve tried using JUCE 5 in Mac OSX and it crashes constantly in Sierra with Logic Pro.
Also I’m having other problems with JUCE 5 in Mac as well. A lot of functionality in my GUI breaks because JUCE sends a mouse drag event after each mouse down event though the mouse position has not changed. This is caused by
MouseInputSourceInternal::handleEvent() thinking there is a pressure change when there is not.
Because of this I’m considering moving my Mac build back to 4.3.1 which I’m perfectly happy with except I’m not sure If I need a special download of 4.3.1 for the Mac?
