Old vercions of JUCE


#1

Hello! Where can i get previous version os JUCE that works os OS X 10.6?


#2

You can clone and/or download any version as zip file directly from github. Just browse the tags:


#3

Maybe i am doing something wrong, but I’m only available the latest version from it

#5

Or select a branch or tag (that’s probably what you are looking for) and click then download (that’s what @myhrman meant)
Third variant: get a git client, clone into the repository and use git checkout

Thank you very much!

I have a bonus question: What’s the latest Juce version that supports OSX 10.6.8?

I just installed 5.3.1, but Projucer doesn’t even start up on my old Mac. It crashes even before I see the UI or anything.


#8

Why are you still running 10.6.8???


#9

JUCE has stopped to compile on my old macbook (10.6.8) at end of version 3 (IIRC).

Probably at that time < Introjucer fails to build with C++98 >.


#10

Oh, that far back, huh? Hmm.

And yes, it’s a very old macbook, and I don’t think it can be upgraded. I guess I should buy a new one, or get someone with a modern mac to compile my plugin for me. (My main computer is Windows 10.)


#11

The Mac Books, that are stuck with 10.6.8 are the 32 bit processor ones, last sold 2006 (12 years ago).
I also own one, that runs technically, but with the OS not being upgraded, it is actually also risky to keep using it…


#12

I know, and I’m reluctant to going online with it. I got it really cheap because I wanted that sexy Sculpture synth that Logic has.

I wonder if I could output an X Code using Projucer on Windows, and then coping the output over to the Mac? That won’t really fly, will it?


#13

What Xcode version can you even run on the old Mac?


#14

I’ve packed it away again, but I’ll check soon. I’m sure it’s some ancient version. In fact, I might run into trouble with C++ 11 and such. I guess I should just bite the sour apple (that’s a danish expression), and go find a proper Mac. Thanks for your advice.


#15

Might be a shot in the dark, but maybe it’s possible to get some modern C++ compiler working even on the old system even if newer Xcode IDEs do not work? (But probably tons of hassle to go through…)


#16

TBH I’m not 100% sure that something you compile on an ancient system like that will actually still work on the latest OS versions.

If you build on 10.6.8 it’ll probably use quite a few API calls that have since been deprecated, and although they tend to make the new OSes backwards-compatible for quite a few years, I would expect that some of those old APIs are now entirely gone (or certainly will be soon).

I love that, it fits perfectly with the logo and the pains it causes your wallet :slight_smile:
