How many JUCE users absolutely require OS X 10.6 support?
Raising the minimum deployment target to 10.7 would allow us to use many more C++11 features in the JUCE codebase, most notably std::atomic and std::*_ptr. As we move towards a more modern API and improve thread safety we have our hands tied in a lot of places because the features we want to use are unavailable in the older standard library required to target older machines.
The usage data we’ve collected contains only a few hits from 10.6 Macs, which is a fraction of a percent of the total, but that’s not a good measure of the JUCE ecosystem as a whole.
Regardless of your opinion on 10.6 compatibility it would be helpful if you could share any data you have regarding 10.6 usage.
