XTads pre-beta 5 is out

XTads is a TADS 2/3 interpreter for Mac OS X (version 10.9 and higher). It’s a GUI application, with native Mac OS X look and feel. Game output is text-only, with limited/simplistic support for HTML.

This version brings a couple of performance fixes:

  • Fixed (or greatly alleviated, at least) a serious issue to do with window/view resizing as the amount of buffered text grew. TADS 2 games using HTML output were especially affected.
  • Right and center aligned text in banners now updates continually as window gets resized.

XTads is still a work in progress. Bug reports and suggestions are more than welcome – see contact info in the program’s About panel.
