The Vault 6 Preview 2 is now available to users who wish to review, test, and offer feedback on the new features of Vault 6.0 software.


There are three new features of note:

Also included in this preview release is the new Vault GUI Client for Mac OS X.

 

To install the Vault GUI Client for Mac OS X, follow these instructions:

  1. Unzip the downloaded archive to a location on your Mac.  The unzipped archive (folder) contains two items:  the Vault Mac application bundle, and an installer for Mono 2.10.6 runtime.

  2. Run the Mono 2.10.6 installer to install this version of Mono on your Mac computer. Mono 2.10.6 is the version we have tested with this Vault Mac preview release.

  3. Now select the Vault Mac application bundle, and drag it into your Applications folder on your Mac. You can now launch the Vault Mac client as a standard Mac application.

To enable Diff / Merge in the Mac client, we recommend the following:

  1. Download and install the latest DiffMerge for Mac OS X from SourceGear:

    http://www.sourcegear.com/diffmerge/downloads.php

  2. Open Diff/Merge options in the Vault Mac GUI Client:

    Tools -> Options -> Diff/Merge

  3. Set the location for the DiffMerge program. For example, the path may be something like:

    /Applications/DiffMerge.app/Contents/MacOS/DiffMerge

  4. In the Arguments textbox, change forward slashes ("/") to dashes ("-")

Mac Client Known Issues:

The Vault GUI Client for Mac OS X relies on the Mono cross-platform .NET framework. There are several known bugs in Mono's support for WinForms on Mac OS X that cause problems in Vault's user interface. We are working to address as many of these issues as we can between now and the final release of our Vault 6 client for Mac OS X.
