What is the likelihood of a port to Mac OS X 10.4?

Asked by Robert Ramsay on 2010-12-20

I don't know what libraries are or are not available on Mac OS X 10.4, but I saw that Lightspark had been ported to PPC. I may end up formatting my PowerBook G4 to Linux anyways. But I was just curious if it were likely to see Lightspark support in Mac OSX, because Adobe's PPC binary is atrocious.

Porting Lightspark to Mac OS X is definitely possibile, although no work has been made in such direction. The main obstacles are probably POSIX compatibility and libraries. Moreover also the plugin should be rewritten as the code is very platform dependent.

Question answered, unfortunately MacOS X support is not yet available
