With Baseview — which provides software tools for publishing, including editorial, advertising, circulation management, production and Internet solutions — debuting new products what of Mac OS X support? It’s coming, though perhaps not quickly.
For instance, Scott Bray, Baseview’s circulation product manager, says in a note on the Baseview Web site, “Current versions of CirculationPro will run under the new OS X in the classic environment. At this time however, there are no advantages to the new OS X that CirculationPro can utilize and we highly recommend that sites delay the installation of OS X.”
“OSX represents a major change from previous Apple operating systems,” said Victor Cardoso, Baseview’s editorial product manager. “Sites should make sure to contact makers of all their third-party software to ensure OSX compatibility. And once that’s done, test, test, test before implementing it company-wide.”
Laura Summers, product manager for ProductionManagerPro, said, “ProductionManagerPro does work in the Classic mode of OSX. The administration program, however, should only be run on an OS 9 machine. We expect to have a Carbon version of the client program this summer.”
